These cricketers once played for the former Stanton Ironworks, but the photograph’s owner wants to know a little bit more about it.

Alan Harlow brought the picture in on behalf of his friend Brian Pratt.

After a bit of research, the pair identified S. Spur, second from the left, and Brown in the middle, both on the back row.

On the front row is Brian’s father Mr Pratt on the left, N. Bowen in the middle, and possibly E. Corns on the right.

They think the picture was taken in the late 1940s or early 1950s.

If anyone recognises someone in the picture, or knows the date, call Alan on 0115 930 1589.
