Your photo is the Stockton F.C. reserve team of 1928, showing off their Nursing cup winning trophy’s. My late uncle Raymond (Dowd) is the player (centre forward) sat at the front.
My uncle Ray and aunt Irene lived in Elsdon Street, Oxbridge adjacent to the old Victoria ground, Stockton F.C.s home ground.
I have uncle Rays, gold winners medal in my possession (they had no children).
The medal, the size of a new £2 coin has the Stockton Castle and Anchor Emblem and the words,
Stockton and Thornaby Nursing Cup, on the surround.
The reverse is inscribed,1928, -Stockton Res- J.R.Dowd
Each player will have received a medal.
Would you have the names of the other team members?
Sorry, I can not name any other players. Uncle Ray spoke of playing alongside Marky Pass, who he rated as a top player?
This could be the Bailey Street School football team. They won all the local tournaments at the time.
What year was it then?
