This picture of Newbold Grange High School rugby team belongs to Tony Wright, who now lives in Yelvertoft.

He was about 14 when it was taken in 1958 or 59 and thinks the picture may have been taken to mark a particularly good season.

On the back row, from left, were Mr Gay (maths and games teacher), Brian Frogsham, ?, Ecclestone?, John Amin Smith, Tom O’Connor, Mr Hill (games teacher), Robert Robson, Dave Reed, Colin Ward, Billy Wrighton and headmaster Mr Neath.

Middle row, John Barrett, John Moore, John Draper, John Hammond, Roger Lee, Bob Lambert and Bob Hare. With Mr Wright in the front row is Mick Blunden.
