WITH reference to the Middle Warren Football Team (Mail Saturday June 15)

I can supply some of the names of the players:

Back row ( left to right) Walter Heal (with coat on) Lewis Ogle, ? Cullen, Dan Godfrey Senior, Billy Carruthers, Les Raw, Lenny Osgood, Gordon Swan, Jasper Ashley, Albert Storey.

Front Row (left to right) ?, Boy (Dan Godfrey’s son) Bob Storey, Kenny Taylor, ?

The side played German POW team at Billingham and the Italian POW team at Rift House and won both matches.

The Italian team invited them back to their Nissen hut for Italian coffee. The hut done out like a church with very elaborate paintings of the Holy Saints.
