These happy youngsters were most definitely up for the cup!

The Lowe House lads were pictured on their Barracks Field pitch in Crab Street after winning the schools’ championship in the mid 1950s.

Pictured on the back row, from left to right, is Pope, Travis, Chisnall, Dixon, Hudson and Tierney.

On the front row is McGinn, Cunliffe, skipper Lever, Bromilow and Tipton.

This memory-jerker - which must now be all of 60 years old - was submitted by retired journalist Denis Whittle.
