Teesside Builders Football Team c1955

t12970This photograph is of the Teesside Builders Football Team. I think they played in the Stockton and District League. Back row first left is Joe Teague who sadly passed away recently and back row third left is Stephen Connor, both cousins of mine.

  1. Maybe this team played in the Middlesbrough Erimus MidWeek League which had all business teams in, lads who had to work on weekend.


    • I have just seen this photo and the goalkeeper is a good friend of mine, he told me this was taken in the 1955-56 season when they won the Stockton and district league (Saturday). He has been able to name all but two of the team. Left To Right Back Row: Joe Teague, Denis Cook, Steve Connor, Steve Stachan, Derek Pritchard, ??. Front Left to right: ??, Danny Vowel, Herbert Millington, Bob Crowe, Barry Dinsdale.


    • You are right Bob they did play where you said, there was a row of house’s they used to change in. Steve told me that between April and May they had to play 20 games in 28 days and still go to work.
