The official first eleven football team photo for 1947–1948 season was missing two of its stars in the goalkeeper, Eric Jay, and the inside-left, Bob Morley. Eric wrote in attaching a printed copy of a photo of the 1948–1949 team to remedy this. David Day supplied a form photo.
Eric could not initially identify the boy next to Ron Myers (whose first name and correct surname was supplied by Steve Cantor) but has since written in suggesting the name Paul Swanton.
David Day writes: 'Not all of the class members are present in the photograph and I have no idea who took it although it might have been our Form Mistress, Mrs Boys (formerly Miss Harding).' David credits Pam Goodman, Gwen Atkins, Eileen Ambridge and Janet Simkins for help with the names. There were two boys named David Tyler in the class.
Leslie Dean has added that he was also in this class but not in the photo, and that he was one of the pupils that dropped down to the A stream at the end of the year.
The Autumn-Winter 2002 newsletter included this photo contributed by Eric Wilkinson with a query over the date, which was believed to be c. 1947, and the name of those featured. In the following newsletter it was revealed that could actually be found in the July 1949 edition of 'The Edmonton County School Chronicle' and all those pictured were named.
