This School Team photo was taken in 1970. We were all about 14 Years of age; most of us were born in 1956.
I think it was at Long Lane Football pitches off Walton Hall Avenue.

We were playing in the Catholic Schools league Play-off, It was against St Martin’s from Dingle, we were 3-0 down and won 4-3 with a goal 5 minutes from time by Jimmy Dunne.

The team is as follows, Back row left to right:

Henry Fearns (sadly passed away), Eddie Crowe, Alby Oates, Alec Crowe, John Lindsay, and Terry Murphy.

Front row, left to Right,

Steve Riley, Chris Vallance, Tony McCabe, (Capt) Tony Bennett, Jimmy Dunne and Tony McVey.

Our Sports Teacher was Mr Locke recorded the game on a cine camera. When we left school the year layer we lost touch with him, love to the see that game again.

Our star player was Jimmy Dunn; Jimmy went on to play for Liverpool boys.

Considering we had only about 40 lads in year 4 we had a really good team. We played in another final that year and beat St Francis Xaviers at Penny Lane playing fields. We were the real underdogs against a really good team, i seem to remember quite a lot of their team were with Liverpool Boys, but we beat them, thanks mainly to out Star man and Man of Match Jimmy Dunn, i think he got a hat trick. ?

Good Times, great memories.
