1955 - Billingham Seven-a-side Competition

The Towns Senior Rugby Clubs started their programmes from the 1940s onwards by entering the Northern RFC Sevens in September and rounding off the season by taking part in the Billingham RFC Sevens often with success. Billingham Sevens was a formal end to the season and the Competition has been revived in recent years as the Ian Brown Memorial Sevens held at the Billingham club’s Greenwood Roads ground in June. The “Mail” Group photographer of those times has caught a number of our local clubs inaction, if anyone can i/d the various players, the names would be welcomed.


The Gallery is given the mid fifties date of 1955/56 for website purposes, any ideas on the exact year of the Competitions would also be welcomed.
