  9. Maggie - Eileen Harland is not a member of this group. She is on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group. I did post a comment to her on the Facebook group, where she posted the mag, but she has not replied yet. If you want you could send me a message, with your address, on this group and I will send a private message = Messenger, on Facebook to Eileen.🙂
  10. Photo from a relative of @John Fox (foxy). On the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group George Railton named number 15 as his dad. On the back of another photo of George's it has 'Netherton Old Boys........ 1950' written and it is believed they played Friendly/Charity matches on a Good Friday. From the info we have derived that this photo is c1949.
