Thanks to Derek Hardy for the photograph and Terry Webster who remembered all the names.
Terry is sitting front left and recalls the photograph was taken at old Wallasey Grammar Withens Lane. St Georges was the only Secondary Modern School playing rugby at the time.
Terry remembers the first day at St Georges when they had rugby practice. Bill Davies lined them all up tallest to smallest. Being the smallest, Terry was elected as scrum half, a position he has played for over 30 years !
Much to the amazement of Bill the team won their first game against St Anselmians which was unheard of in those days.
Terry is still involved with Wallasey and New Brighton rugby clubs.
The Rugby team circa 1961. Sent in by Derek Hardy.
