Norton Cricket Team

This is a follow up to a picture added to Picture Stockton showing the Norton Juniors Team from 1942. The team won a cup and league double with my late father Tom Birtle as captain. This picture is much nearer to the camera and I can only hope someone can recognise some of the other players…

  1. Thank you for sharing this photograph. I feel sure that my father, Ken Sheraton, would have known these people as he told me he used to get paid a few pennies as a child to keep the scoreboard right. He was born in 1929 and would have been around 13 at the time. I well remember the first photo that was posted as I thought it possible that my uncle Gordon, his brother, could have been front row second from right, but having seen this photo I don’t think it was him.
