Champion footballers

Proudly displaying a trophy is this young team of victorious footballers from a Bakewell school.

The picture shows a football team from Bakewell Church of England Secondary Modern School.

The boys were in the 1949-50 squad.

The snap was taken when the team won the Fengl Cup.

Two members hold the well-earned trophy at the top of the picture.

The boys are all wearing the standard football kit for the team – with striped shirts, socks and football boots.

The goal keeper is in the centre of the photograph set apart by what he is wearing.

Did you play football when you were a youngster?
