This photo was taken at St. Bedes at Halebarns in the Autumn of 1967; it shows the famous team that never lost a match in its whole season.
Two of the players, Macca McDonald and Tiny Walton, were actually pupils at Oldwood Secondary, but as this school was about to be amalgamated with Poundswick, it was felt that they were eligible to be part of the Poundswick team.
Tony Pickford particularly remembers Dave Measures playing on the wing: "Dave's out-of-school hobby was velodrome cycling and he was extremely fit - we'd get the ball out to him and he'd go off like a scalded cat!"
