This picture of the Southery school football team in 1949 has been supplied to us by Lynn News reader Peter Shinn.

He now lives in North Wootton, but as a youngster lived at Southery and tells us: “They were all classmates of mine although I had left the school in 1948 to go to Downham Grammar School after passing the 11-plus at the second attempt.”

Pictured in the line-up are, back row from left: Tom Savage, Norman Fincham, Derek Pope, Den Hudson, Derek Cornwell, George Osler, Norman Thompson, Brian Porter.

Front row: Conway Langley, Maurice Legge, Eric Misson, Brian Leet and Ron Osler.
