What memories does this photo bring back?  Perhaps you played in this side or knew someone who did?  Maybe you played rugby for Fielding’s in a different year and remember the games, banter, and atmosphere of the club and the ground at Hempsted?  If so why not leave a comment below?

  • Thanks Nigel for adding yet more names to our sports team photographs. Were you involved in the sports and social side of Fielding’s yourself? It would be useful if you could also help us date when the photos of the cricket teams might have been taken from the personnel you’ve identified.

  • I think that the player 5th from the left in the back row is Bill Shanks. Regards, Nigel Coote
