Haslingden St. James Football Club - c1971

Ian Warburton has kindly sent this photo of Haslingden St. James Football Club. (Please click over photo once to enlarge and then click over again to supersize)

This is a team photo from my days playing for Haslingden St James' FC. I'm fairly certain this was August 1971. It is taken on Houghtons Road pitches (*now Haslingden Sports Centre) before the final of the 'Haslingden Competition' against Haslingden FC . The tournament was held before each season for all Haslingden and Helmshore teams.
Back Row :- Ian Warburton, Brian Tomlinson, Brian Thompson, Jack Pilling, Ray Howarth, Clive Whitehead.

Best Regards,
