Football team at Birnham Products

Pictured here is the football team at Birnham Products in Langley Mill.

It is thought the photo was taken in the late 1960s, and men pictured include Ron Eaton, John Walters, Rob Clay, Bob S, Des Bentley, and John Naylor.

The company is now called Beamlight Automotive, but it went bust back in October.

Cliff Carlin, who submitted this photo, and the two below, worked at the company for 36 years as a maintenance fitter until it went into administration.

“It was sad to leave,” he said. “It was a huge part of my life.”
