Tony - couldn't remember the Teacher's name when I first saw the picture but your Dr Parrot has jogged my memory - Dr J.D. Parrack. Confirmed the name by visiting Mansel Dinnis's (ex head boy early 1960's) web site :- http://www.sempersursum.co.uk/Bedlington_Grammar_School/BGS_Welcome.html

Can't help with the names of the football teams Welwyn too early for me and the BGS one too late for me, I left in 1965. Did see most of the BGS team in the Photos of the 'sempursersum' site - Photos 1961-1978 and scroll down to 1973 - Last Sixth Form.  Seeing the whole class together might help remember some names.

Eggy,

I couldn't remember his name but his nose did look a bit like a parrots beak l.o.l

Welwyn picture - My Dad spotted Lambert Bellerby straight away and reckons the player on Lambert's immediate left is William Watson.

The goalkeeper is George Besford.

Reedy,

Would that be George Besford who lived in Foster Avenue, Bedlington around 1972-ish?

If so used to knowck around with his son Stu!
