Cotteridge Primary School football team, 1959-60

Thanks to Neil Brown (goalkeeper) for this: contact us if you want to get in touch with him.

Also featured are Nicky Twigg, Cliff Owen, Ian Cresswell, Archie Milward and Mr Hewlett.

Update: Marty Holeyman has e-mailed to say that he is the Harry Potter lookalike on the right hand side. If anyone wants to get in touch with him, contact us or leave a comment below and we’ll forward it on.

Update 2: Ian Caswell writes: ”Absolutely amazed and pleased to see the photo. I am the ‘footballer’ front row extreme right. Slight mis-spelling but the name should read Ian Caswell. Archie Millward is actually the one on the other side of Neil Brown behind the teacher. Archie and I are still in regular contact after 55 years! Front row far left is Richard James.”

    Hi,

    I have just discovered this wonderful site and it has brought back many many happy memories of my time at Cotteridge School from 1957-1960.

    Absolutely amazed and pleased to see the photo. I am the ‘footballer’ front row extreme right. Slight mis-spelling but the name should read Ian Caswell. Archie Millward is actually the one on the other side of Neil Brown behind the teacher. Archie and I are still in regular contact after 55 years! Front row far left is Richard James.

    Regards
    Ian Caswell

  • Neil Brown:

    Ian,
    My apologises for getting your name wrong (it was a long time ago!).
    Also apologises to Archie Millward for confusing him with another.
    Can you name any of the other faces in the photo?
    Regards,
    Neil Brown

    Still searching for Mary Teresa (TESSA) Johnson born 1945. Mary (TESSA) was in Shenley Fields Childrens Home after her mother Gladys died in 1950. Mary went to Tinkers Farm and Cotteridge schools. Her brothers are searching for her

    Regards Christine

    My brother is on the back row second right his name is John Smith and a friend of mine Cliff Owen is on the front row, he worked with my brother in the 70s and I am sure they do not remember being at school together. Most of my mothers family went to Cotteridge School; they were the Witherfords from Lifford Lane.
