9th Rugby St. Marie’s Cubs

Roger Hagan of Binley sent us this picture and hoped it would be of interest to other readers.

The boys are members of the 9th Rugby (St Marie’s) cubs and this photograph was taken around 1953 in Whitehall Recreation Ground, Hillmorton Road at a rounders match against another cub pack.

Roger, who is second from the left on the front row, can name the St Marie’s team, who were (front row, from left) Tony Caffrey (who appears to be stargazing!), Roger Hagan , Alan Barford, Paul Davies, Dermot McCourt, Kevin Watts, Gerald Wilson and Tony Francis.

The only two members of their opponents he remembers are Brian Bottero (who is in the middle of the back row) and Alan Evans who is third from the right.

If anyone recognises themselves or can name any of the other cubs, please get in touch.
