Please note - this news article was published more than five years ago. Some of the information contained may no longer be correct.

This week’s photos were all taken at the same tournament as they have the same photo reference number on the back. But where and when were the pictures taken?

The last photo is of Terry Young and the player number on the back of the player in photo 2 reads 196/97 if that helps.

Please contact me on [email protected] with any information and don’t forget that the whole series of photos can be found under ‘Our Sport’.

I received some very useful responses to last week’s first two pictures, thanks to all who contacted me, but none of the large group at Lilleshall Hall.

Bryan Merrett, Desmond Douglas, Jeff Nix, Diane St Ledger, Derek Munt. A training session at Lilleshall Hall around 1971. Bryan Merrett was the National Junior Coach at the time.

Unfortunately there has been no feedback on the photo sent in by Ernest Jackson which was taken in 1964/65 at Lilleshall Hall. Ernest is on the back row (3rd from the right). 5th from the right, back row, is Richard Padley  who is the only other person known apart from Jack and Elsie Carrington on the front row.
