Moor Lane School 1955-1961

I was at Moor Lane Infants and Junior School between about 1955 and 1961 before going to Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Below is a class photo of Miss Brotherhoods class. I’m third from the right on the back row. Some names I remember. Most I don’t so it would be nice if someone could put names to faces. It now seems a large class. Over 40!
I also attach a photo of a press cutting, probably from the Chad when, following a draw with King Edwards, Moor Lane were joint holders of the Frederick Freer Trophy in 1961. My recollection is that this junior final was the first to be played under the new floodlights at Field Mill but I stand to be corrected. We played with a especially made size 3 case ball. As left half it still hurt to head it!
They were very happy times. We lived at the time on Hermitage Avenue
