THIS week's search in The Bolton News picture archives has unearthed this photograph of a Darcy Lever football team from 1996.

The only information accompanying the picture says that it was taken in March of that year.

Do you recognise any of the team or did you play for Darcy Lever at that time?

Do you know how the team fared that season?

Email with any recollections.

THE second photograph was included in the sporting nostalgia section a week ago and features the Mount St Joseph's School team from May 1987 before their final in the Bolton Wanderers Schools' Cup.

Reader Graham Mayor emailed in and said: "As memory serves the players are, back from left, Michael Garfin (RIP), John Baylis, Kevin ?, Peter ?, ? , ?, Martin Mallon; front, Peter ? , ? McGreavy, Matthew ? , Troy Tattersall, Aron (not sure of the spelling) Watson, Michael Whitehead.

"The final played for the Bolton Wanderers’ Trophy (a replica of the FA cup), at Burnden Park in the week prior to the FA Cup final.

"Bernard Kirkbright was the teacher in charge of that team.

"A colleague at school, Lyn Ivers asked Neil Midgley, who was the appointed referee for the FA Cup final at Wembley, to referee the schools’ final and he agreed to officiate.

"We lost the toss with regard to kit duplication as Thornley also had a yellow/black kit.

"The managing director of sponsors HB Electronics, Keith Harris – whose boys attended MSJ and also played in goal for our staff team – arranged for the team to borrow a full kit as his company were the main sponsors of Bolton Wanderers.

"We won the match, though the score escapes me.

"However I do remember feeling very proud of all the people concerned that day and still do for that matter."

Keith Harris also recalled Neil Midgley refereeing and remembered a TV crew filmed him as it was his last game before officiating the FA Cup final.

Meanwhile, reader Chris Taylor said: "If this was the game played at Burnden, the score was 3-2 to Mount.

"I played for Thornleigh."
