Norman Langley's photograph of the Ilkeston Tradesmen XI cricket side

A former teacher at Granby Junior School has supplied the Advertiser with another photograph of his days here in Ilkeston.

This time Norman Langley’s picture has no connection with the Heanor Road school but shows instead the Ilkeston Tradesmen XI cricket sqaud, probably taken in the 1950s.

Norman, 83, now of Kent, can be seen third from the right on the back row. He said: “The photogrpah shows the Ilkeston Tradesmen XI playing someone but who it was and when, as well as the names of the cricketers, I would like to know.”
