Looks very much like Bill Rostron standing 3rd from right.
yes it is Bill a nice man
Standing 5th left is Stan Gaskell - a butcher at Hitchen Bros in Orrell. Worked with my dad.. got me the job as resident drummer with Elgar Mathews on Organ.
I, think the person on the far right is Jack Meadows he
used to work at Pemberton Caravans,and lived in Orrell.
The ist man standing on the left looks like the late Frank Carruthers.
Man in middle of back row with the light suit on I think is John(?) Heaton. Lived in Kitt Green
i believe the bloke kneeling middle front row is Bert May ,he was a welder at walmsley"s when i was a lad
You are right Bumper - Bill was a true gent.
The men on the front row on left are Edward Davies and Jack Evens
That's my granddad Billy Halliwell 8th from the right on the back row.
orrell legion. i remember going there as akid on "family nights", fridays i think was good fun. then i grew up n went in quite regular, dont think my dad (brian lowe) was best pleased tho as he was a regular himself,
I was the resident organist there 1983,4,5 and a bit of 86.i think i recognise a couple of faces in the photo.
Yes Dave thats our Grandad William, I think Arnold Ashcroft if the first on the left kneeling down too I know quite a few of the faces too
What year was this please? I recognised Bill Rostron
What a great pic. I used to live opposite the club and was a glass collector from around 74 to 77. great memories
think that's Joe Berry 9th from left on back row who went on to be the steward. Bert May on front row and Stan Gaskell and Bill rostron are correct. I will remember a lot of the other names later and post what I can
