Excellent photo, Barton Rafie, here is one of my era. I should be on here but I'm not for some reason, nor are a few of the other regular players. The lad at the bottom left is Keech

Alan Keech. Is he still with us ? not heard of him for years . Also Jai (Gordon Bowron) last I saw of him must have been in 1976 when I was at Kirkley Hall. He appeared one day on a short horticultural course, he was a council gardener.

Funny enought, Keith, I can't remember Keechy. My mate, Bob Barron, used to knock around with him for a while but I can't say I recall him. But the others with the question marks on are a total mystery.

That explains everything, Eileen. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - a mariner kills an albatross and the ship is 'cursed'. So it was your fault we all had to go to PLR. Mind you, I never liked Ferguson - he made us do country dancing, remember.

Photo of Bedlington Station football team in 1957. The teacher was Jimmy Johnston.

Some names added and file saved in 'png' format so they can be changed if necessary.

I can't remember dancing there, Eileen, but I can remember doing the Bradford Barndance and the Gay Gordon at PLR with Ferguson poncing around. Anne Evans was my partner one day.

But I do recall watching Genghis Khan at the Youth Club, so they must have shown films there!!

Can anyone remember who taught Technical Drawing at the Woody School - 1969-70s. I have my own idea but I'll reserve it until someone answers.

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
