A photograph showing the Football Team from St Gerard’s School, Haverton Hill c1955. I do believe we won a game but cannot recall the name of our opponents, or if indeed it was just a dream…
Back row (l-r); Mr D Carroll (best teacher ever), Terry Lavery, Terry Callaghan, Cecil Crinnion, Petter Nugent, John Waller, Micky Daniels. Headmaster Mr Morrisey.
Front row (l-r); Frankie McGrogan, Tony Crinnion, Charlie Kennedy, Billy McGreal, Frankie Kennedy.
Nice to see old photographss of Haverton Hill to remind us of how things used to be.

I have just seen a post on Stockton pictures, of St Gerard’s school junior football team and they did in fact beat Preston school my apologies to Philip Hill. I cannot recall the senior team winning a game though.
Terry Callaghan the goalkeeper later played for Billingham Synthonia Juniors, he was in engineering & later became a police officer.
I was at Preston primary school (Eaglescliffe) and remember playing against Haverton Hill 1955/56. I remember because it was about the best performance I ever had as your team was rather good.
Are you sure it was st Gerard’s and not Haverton Hill school? Would love to think we where quite good though, I believe the only thing we where really good at was trying.
