Market Lavington Museum

Post War Football


We have recently been given a photo of The Lavington and Easterton United football team for the 1949/50 season.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the names of the players, but we do have Bill Elisha’s note, written on the back of the photo.

Bill Elisha’s note on the back of the photo. Bill was chairman of the Market Lavington and Easterton Football Club

The one person in the photo we are fairly certain we know is Bill Elisha. He’s the man in the coat, crouching at the right hand end of the front row of players.

Can anybody tell us who the other people are? Maybe somebody can see enough to identify the location as well.

Please email the curator if you can.
