In another photograph submitted by reader Kelvin Bonsall, we can see his Stanley Common team posing for a picture ahead of their biggest game of the season.

He said it was taken in 1962 or 1963 on Bennerley School’s playing fields in Cotmanhay and it was the Derbyshire Football Association cup final.

Kelvin is the goalkepper, fourth from the right on the back row.

Holding the cup is Dennis Booth, who Kelvin said went on to become a professional footballer.

And to Kelvin’s right is Jack Smithurst who he said became a teacher after the picture was taken.
