  • Great picture of the 1949 Runwell Hospital football team.
    I have identified the following from left to right.

    Back row
    1. Harry Hill, 2 Jack Brown, 3 Bill Phillips, 4/5 unknown,
    6. Bertie Bone, 7 unknown, 8 Jack Clarkson (my father)
    Front row
    1. Unknown, 2 Ken Wright, 5 unknown, 4 Bob Curry.

    Hopefully other readers can identify the rest, some I recognise but names are lost in my memory.
