A few faces on here that I recognise.
Don't know any on the back row.
L to R second row, I think first one is George Norburn, next two don't know then Brian Roberts(holding smaller of two cups) then Roy Boardman.
Two sat down are left David Davies and right Alan Baldry.

Is that the Alan Baldry of Wigan RUFC Vets fame ?

That would be the Smith cup. St Georges had won it more than any other school when Billy Spencer, the headmaster, pulled the plug in about 1956. The jerseys were yellow and green. They played on the Camels Hump, AKA The Bloody Mountains. Not a blade of grass on it. A clay patch with umpteen streams running through it full of stones, glass and other rubbish.
