Are you from Town end Farm?The Russells lived next door to me Lass'es Ma's house on one side and me Aunt on the other, Joe and Norm are still kicking about and the sisters too... Used to work with Norm once at Seaham..and if I recall Joe and Norm's dad & mam were invited to our wedding. Joe snr and the uncles all sang at my wedding. Bear, me and him had some great scraps playing footing on a Sunday morning. Sammy , I never knew him one to one but we always seemed to be where ever SAFC was. Tommy again with football and the pubs canny lad and then he teamed uo with Brian Leng on the short lived magazine. (still have the copies somewhere..T Other names ,I will know , but have forgotten with the passage of time but your right, everyone knew everyone. The Beehive was a great boozer and the last watering hole memory before setting out on the train for Wembley all of those years ago... great times and great memories. Cheers for that.

Defo Jessie C next to TT on the photo.

Dont need them, the images of that team pic are fresh, as if yesterday
Woaaahh there.As are you for breaking the golden rule for this type of forum by providing the real names of folks - you also have history for doing this.
I'd be furious if someone outed me on here without asking my permission first, and so would you at a guess.

There's a shock. He was told he needed both hips replacing about 3 years a go, i know he's had 1 done but he didn't mention the second op when i spoke to him. Think he just loves sitting with his feet up watching the telly now. Still loves his Lucky 15's mind.Last time I seen him was about ten years ago on a train to London. Iirc he didn't have a train ticket .
According to Tom, the names are as follows
top left to right ; Gunner, Unknown, The Bear, Cal B, Ray Fogie, Lamma, Unknown
Middle left to right ; Ben Cooney, Bertie O, Ben Gochea, Jessie, Anth Turner,
