THIS week's picture was found in the picture archives and features a Bolton Lads Club team from September 1983.

The accompanying information says the team are pictured receiving a cheque for £250 which they received thanks to Wanderers' 8-1 thrashing of Walsall earlier in the month being voted the Fiat performance of the week by a panel of top managers.

The Lads club benefited from the money and a set of football strips which they are seen receiving from Whites legend Nat Lofthouse and Derek Preston, general manager of Knibbs (Bolton) Ltd – Fiat dealers – before Wanderers' home game against Burnley.

THE second picture featured in the sporting nostalgia section on October 25 and is the Thornleigh Salesian College’s under-15s’ football team from June 1989.

There has been more feedback following on from last week from reader Danny Bamping who said: "On the back row, from left, are Mr Fletcher I think and then Andrew Noone – Started YTS soon after this photo with Man Utd – along with Giggs, Beckham, Nevilles, Butt and Scholes…but unfortunately didn’t get taken on as they did.

"He became a fireman I believe and starred in a film – Class of 92 – or another one where they reunited for the aforementioned – and played a match I think.

"Then comes Michael McGuiness, Mat Leighton – the goalie who is now a genetic scientist I believe and lives in the Midlands.

"Chris Joules, who worked in a mobile phone shop last time I saw him about three years ago in Bolton, is next and then it is Martin Jordan, who lives in Bolton and still goes to Wanderers matches, with Andrew Clarke on the right.

"On the front left is Christian Healy who lives in New Zealand and is a headmaster.

"Then it's Ste Brady who lives in Bristol and works for Stax Trade Centres, then Barry Dawson and Paul Fisher – a car salesman in Bolton.

"On the right is Simon Walker. He is an architect/surveyor who lives in Bolton and works in Manchester – he was one of my best mates in school.

"I was sub that day…and wasn’t used #gutted.

"It was great to be part of a winning team though and be in the dugout. It was a great game, too."
