My father, Islwyn Thomas, was a P.E., Games and Maths master at Brunts in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The photographs are of the various teams he was involved with at that time. He was also a very good soccer player himself and would have had the chance to play professionally for one of the Welsh clubs had it not been for WWII and subsequent injury. He was able to play for Brunts Old Boys in the Midland Amateur Alliance and was captain of the M.A.A. in several matches.
In the late 50s and early 60s he was the trainer/coach for Mansfield Boys and they were very successful under his guidance
He was also a very keen cricketer and again played for the Old Boys for many years.
