25 Does anyone know who or what J B could have been? I found this old photo of a football team, the writing on the back says J B cup final team 1939-1940. The photo would have been taken somewhere in Litherland and I can only guess at Johnson Bros

After looking at the photo posted by Sankey Dianne of the 1936 Lake Cup Final I thought I would post this team photo of the 1963 English Martyrs team that beat rivals Litherland Moss 1-0.
Top row from the left as you look at the photo: Peter Duffy ( lived in Anderson Rd), Arthur O’Brien ( lived off Bridge Rd), John Bracken ( lived in Moss Lane), Paul Clarke ( lived in St.Philips Ave Paul became mayor of Liverpool), Derek Draper ( lived in William Wall Rd), Jimmy Ryan ( lived in Harington Rd),
Front row, again from the left
Billy Kitwin( lived on the Ford Estate), Barry Lyonette ( not sure where Barry lived but his dad was headmaster at St Robert Bellarmine), John Doran (I lived Moss Lane), Paul Mitchell, ( lived in Bridge Croft) and Peter Lennon ( lived in Thirlmere Drive).

I doubt that any of the men here will still be with us, but perhaps family members will recognise them.
The photo was taken in 1958 and shows the Liverpool Co-op team..failed finalists for the English Baseball Cup.
My late brother Frank Hawkins is in the back row, 3 Rd from the left.....
