Peter Young, of Waingroves, brought in a picture of Butterley Brickworks’ cricket team.

He said: “It’s a picture from a family friend – Mrs Brierley who was a cousin of the author Walter Brierley. She passed away over a year ago.”

The only person he can identify is a Bernard Boam, a councillor from Waingroves, on the far right of the photograph.

He added: “Butterley were playing the brickworks in Ollerton. Looking at the bus, I think we’re in the early 1930s.” A former brickworker himself, Mr Young says he is impressed by the team’s smart appearance.
