Here is Arsenal great and former TV presenter Bob Wilson pictured while playing for Derbyshire Schools in 1957.

Wilson, born in Chesterfield in 1941, would go on to represent the Gunners more then 300 times, winning the First Division and FA Cup double in 1971.

He was capped by Scotland and after hanging up his boots went in to coaching and broadcasting - a career that lasted 28 years.

The photograph was submitted by Terry Fletcher.
