Thurmaston Junior School Football Team, 1960/61 Season. (#034)
This photograph shows the boys of the Thurmaston Junior School football
team during their 1960/61 season when they won Division 6 Leicester
Junior Schools league. It is believed that this was the first time the
school had won a football trophy, which was an achievement as there
were only a few boys at the school from which a team selection could
be made. The team played its games on Saturday mornings at Roundhill
School, but could not use the changing room facilities at the school,
rather the steps of the school footbridge were used as a shelter for
doning kit. Most of the individuals in the photograph have been identified
by Mr. Neil Hughes, who appears in the photograph.
