My first instinct tells me this could be the Potterie RLFC.
Or another Wigan club. Due to the fact that in the background you can see the railway line and the embankment. The backround looks very similar to where they used to play.
Just an inspired guess!

This was taken at Little lane and features the old Wigan Unionist RU team.Gordon Bennett, John Leyland and Eddie Caddick are three of the players I recognise

Is that the Gordon Bennett who use to run Highfield Bowling Club, Benny? Back row, extreme right...
