A photo of the Holts Sports Football Team from the 1950s.

Information from St Helens Star reporter Simon Muligan

BRIAN Renshall, from Rainhill, shared this wonderful photo of Holt Sports football team, which dates from the late 1950s.

Brian said: "Second left is Roy Birchall, the two gents at the back on the left are Stan and Frank Crompton and the little guy kneeling front right is Johnny Ball.

"The three young lads peering through the window are the Maddison twins Frank and Tony, in between them is Barry Holiday. All three went on to play for Holts Sports.

"Perhaps you could include the photo on your nostalgia page. Maybe some of your readers can help identify some of the others. I would love to know who the very smart looking gentleman at the back on the right is!"
