Footie fashions that change over the years

editorial image

It’s not just on the high street that fashions change over the years.

As this photo illustrates, the style of both haircuts and sports gear have altered a fair bit on the football field.

It was sent in to us by Terry Fletcher, who collects old football team photos for a hobby. His collection now numbers over 1,600.

The one he has sent in is an image that once appeared in the Mercury, which Terry estimates dates back to the mid 1950’s.

Here at least the haircuts prove as useful as carbon dating when working out the age of the images!

Terry said: “I would be interested to know if any of the players are still living locally.”

If you recognise yourself - or anyone else on the photo, please let us know.

If you have any old photos from yesteryear you’d like to share with our readers, we’d love to see them!
