"The PE teacher was Douglas Mitchell.

For the life in me, I cannot remember whether this was Broughton School's First or Second XV but you can see that frowns and stern appearance were the order of the day."

Archie Foley replied:

"I think this team is probably the Second X."

Archie also supplied the names of a couple of players bellow.
