Wendy wrote (Sept 2007): "Sorry, I have no information about this photo.It must have been taken in the early 1950s ; we lived in Lydbrook and my father refereed for local teams, sometimes going as far as Ross. It may be a team from that area, but I really know nothing about it".
Thanks also to Heather Gilmour who added (Oct 2007): "This is a photo of Mitcheldean Football Club" and
to John George for identifying the referee as Henry Jordan.

John George has given more information regarding the Mitcheldean team
The team is the Mitcheldean first team circa 1948 they were playing at that time in the North Gloucester League Division 2.
He asks "does anyone know where the 11th player was?"
A visitor who forgot to leave a name wrote (August 2008): "The missing player could well be my father, Les Tuffley, brother of Fred Tuffley, who were both regulars in the team. As this was taken about 60 years ago his memory cannot recall why he was not there on that day!"
Thanks also to Ted Tuffley.
