Top row - Third Player from right is Howard Davies.

Hopefully I'll be seeing Howard this evening and will get the names of the other players.

Howard lives in Chepstow and is now retired. His father was one of the miners who dug out the one ton block of coal for The Festival of Britain on Sirhowy level, just below Hetherington's Garage.

The coal is on dsiplay in the park.

Back Row :- Ernie Andrews (Cogan);Wyndham Reed; John Snelgrove; Howard Davies; ???? ; John Pitchford;
Front Row :- Brian Phillips; Lyndon Jones; David Palfrey; Raymond Hughes; ?????
Photograph taken over on "Dai's Pitch" Sirhowy AFC's home ground which as far as I can remember didn't have a blade of grass on it and the teams used to change at Sirhowy Inn.

Howard's father was Cyril Davies and brothers David and Desmond.
PS :- I sent Pierre last week a photo of lump of coal being dug out of level as described by Bryan but he hasn't put it onto forum yet ?

Anyhow Howard told me the names he could remember:

Back Row. ? Cogan (trainer)Byron Price, ?Reed,John Snelgrove, Howard Davies, ???, John Pritchard.

Front Row. Brian Phillips, Lyndon Jones, David Palfrey, Raymond Hughes,
???.
