n Seeing this picture will be quite a surprise for one of the young men in it - who was 80 yesterday (Wednesday, November 14).

His family wanted to wish him a very happy birthday - and share this photograph of his sporting days with Looking Back readers.

The footballers were all colleagues from where he worked in the BTH Tool Room and this picture was taken at a six-a-side inter-departmental competition in 1951.

The birthday boy is Ted Carter, who is on the left hand side of the front row, with his brother Derek on the right hand side and Pete Harris between them.

On the back row were Stan Linnell, Fred Steele, Len Timms, Dave Snook, Len Sheffield and Frank Griffin.

Ted played for other teams where he lived in Clifton, so people may remember him from those.

Married to Brenda, they have four children and live in Brownsover.
