Boys are back in town

THIS pair of pictures was sent in by Geoff Hodson, of Thornleigh Avenue, Thornes.

They show Wakefield Trinity Juniors, who were formed in 1947. Late Wakefield Trinity player Frank Mortimer used to be a member of the team.

Pictured in the 1947 photograph, left, are: Mr Ackroyd, F Mortimer, M Glee, G Parker, Mr Blackburn, D Ward, Mr Smith, F Briton (coach), G Hodson, G Flowers, B Sykes, J Ward, Mr Whitehead, A Bedford and L Easter.

The second photo, below, features most of the same players two years later. It was taken at a curtain raiser before Wakefield Trinity's match against Warrington in 1949 at Belle Vue.
