LOOKING BACK: St Mark’s were the bee’s knees at football 50 years ago

This week’s picture, sent in by Peterborough Telegraph reader Michael Simpson, takes us back 50 years. It’s of the St Mark’s School football team pictured outside the school in Gladstone Street in 1966. “We won just about everything. It was either us or Stanground,” recalls Michael. “The only person missing from the photo is our old sports teacher, the formidable Mr Laxton. I think I have remembered all the names correctly.” From the left are, back, Colin Slater (captain), Roderick Tippen, Pasquale Tuccillo, Peter Tenerowicz, Steven Mottram, Michael Simpson, middle, Phillip Berridge, Christopher Tanner, Verrol Lewis, Christopher Savage, Brian Cunnington, front, Colin Fry and Lennie Tompson.
