Do you recognise footballers in 1940s team photo?
3:00pm Saturday 15th February 2014 in News
Can you shed any light on an unknown football team lining up for a photo in the 1946/7 season?
Window fitter Sid McDonald, 43, who grew up in Braintree and now lives in Bures, is appealing for information about the picture.
The photo’s frame includes a mark saying Braintree, but Sid does not know where the team were based.
He said: “I got it a few years ago from my dad, who lives in Rayne and used to run the pub in the village - it could have come from there.
“I think it is an absolutely beautiful photo - it symbolises they made it through the war and now they’re kicking a ball about.”
