Photo Information for 1951.jpg

Recommended Comments

Photo and some names from John Fox. Jack Kidd posted this info on the Facebook group Bygone Bedlington :- I've been to Woodhorn Archives today and whilst looking through some old copies of The Blyth News/Ashington Post I came across this very same photo. It was in an edition from late 1955 but it stated that it was a retrospective photo from October 1951. The great thing is that most the surnames are as already identified by contributors to this site. However, No. 8 is Harry Walker, No. 9 is Tichy Mather, No. 10 is Billy Richardson and No. 11 is George Richardson. At this time (between 1949 and 1952) the Mechanics played their matches in The Northumberland Miners Welfare League. They moved to a higher standard to The Northern Combination in August 1952 and stayed there for 3 seasons before once again going up in standard to The Northern Alliance for the 1955/56 season.
