Manor Park 3   Shoreditch College 2

Newspaper photographs of the two teams involved in the Shoreditch College (Manor Park old boys) v Manor Park School football match.

The team and the game was organised by then third year college student Darrel Dunning and played on the Tomkinson Road recreation ground, on what would have been the college's last day of term in December 1963.

At the time there were no less than twelve Manor Park old scholars at the college, two in their third year and four in each of the first and second years. 

We have names for everyone except the uniformed person is standing at the back on the right of the school team, carrying a linesman's flag.  Please contact me if you can name him.

 

This photograph was taken in about 1970. It seems to be an informal form photograph. The teacher in the middle of the back row is art teacher Mr. John Checketts.  If you can name any of the pupils, or give an accurate date, please contact me.
