James Hughes Think this may be the Red Lion fitba team. Certainly features my big cousin James Lennon, a superb athlete. Used to see them play at the pitches from the pool windows at Blantyre Sports Centre. James was renown for his “throw in” being a champion sportsman at javelin. Remember a few of the faces too. Great photo. The Adidas Shirt style might help with the date.
