1940 - West Hartlepool Secondary School

What we know about this image :

The Secondary School XV 39/40, one of the many teams that turned out quality Rugby players from the School that operated from Lauder Street, playing on the ‘Rec in the 30s and later as the Grammar School at Brinkburn. With the reorganisation of Education in the early 70s, they became 6th Form College and are still prominent in Schools Football.

Only one name is known on the photograph presently, which is the Captain holding the ball Richard William Robson; any information would be welcomed by the Website Administrator as to the identity of the Master’s and the remaining team players.
