Market Lavington Museum

A 1953 school football team


With this being Diamond Jubilee year, we are looking back to the 1950s, when our Queen Elizabeth came to the throne. Her coronation, of course, was in 1953.

We have looked at the 1953 school hockey team in the past. Click here.

Today we are looking at the lads – a school football team from 1953.

Market Lavington School Football Team - 1953

These lads are standing outside the door to what was then Market Lavington School and is now ‘The Old School’. It looks as though a 7-a-side version of the game was played. We do not have the full names of all of the players.

On the back row from left to right we have; Ellis, Owen, J Matthews and H Stockley.

The front three from left to right are: Burt, G Ellis and either R Chapman or T Webb.

We will, no doubt, see some of these young men at the museum this year. Then we’ll get full names.
