Hi Daniel, if you go to Photos/Album/Schools/St Nathaniels Platt Bridge--The lad 2nd from right on the back row (boys) was Chris Keenan----may be of interest and a relative. I last saw him when he played for Moss Lane .Youth club in 1953

Hi Daniel, Sorry to hear about Frank he was a smashing bloke. I worked with him for about 30yrs on the Railway. He was ex Royal Navy and could he tell some tales. I had not heard of his passing very sad. Thanks for letting me know.

Frank & Jimmy Keenan were brought up on Frog lane . We knew the street as The Crack, which was behind Shannon's shop at the top of Prescot street. They were two grand lads,and as stated I think one of them went into the Royal Navy, and the other worked on the railways.

thanks for info pajero. I am surprised that they loved in Frog Lane I thought they all stayed around Scholes. The two people your talking about would be my Grandads two cousins. My Grandad also called Frank was brought up in Teck Street Scholes
