Echoes of the past: Do you recognise these young cricketers?

Here are members of another school proudly showing off their silverware.

This photograph shows the 1953 Ashlar Junior Schools Cricket Shield Winners.

The school is St Andrew’s and these boys must be all about the age of nine or ten years old.

If these boys were all born c1944 then many of them will be or almost 70 years of age.

I wonder if any of them are still here in the Brighouse area and have memories of the day they won the big match for their school.

If you are out there or you recognise one of your relatives on this photograph I would like to hear from you.
