Fran Cotton - it certainly looks like the former rugby union prop forward who played for England and the British Lions. His clubs included Coventry R.F.C. and Sale. After retiring, he remained in rugby administration and founded a clothing company

Fran was born in 1947 and is a local lad, so he would be about 8 when this photo was taken. A big lad even then!

Once saw Fran give his oppsite number on the French Team a torrid time

Blimey! Lots of familiar names there. Have not got any old school photos so it was great to see this. Where is everyone now! Be good to hear from anyone on this photo.
