A photo here from 1981, which shows the football team at "HILL FARM JUNIOR SCHOOL". I can only remember the names of a few of the players now and they are: JASON CROSBIE, DARREN JENKINSON, ROBERT KENNEDY, ALAN MEAD and PAUL OUTRAM. There's also a lad pictured whose surname is HOPKINS, but I can't remember his first name now (his dad was called Dave and they lived along Beake Avenue near the junction with Foster Road).

It would certainly be good if some of them were on here, Dreamtime, as they might hopefully be able to help in putting names to the rest of the players for me??? lol.

If you type Hill Farm into the search box and press "go" it will lead you to many mentions of the school on the forum Thumbs up This might help with names or contacts

I well remember D Di's ice cream when I went to school at Hill Farm in Foster Road, 1948 I think most days his van used to stop just inside Heathcote Street at the end of the school day - still remember the taste 70 years later. Mum used to tell me it was not good because of what was in it - I did not care as it tasted great. There must have been lots of us kids who went to Hill Farm School but not many appear on this forum. Anyone remember Miss Bull? She regularly smacked my fingers with her ruler when she could not read my writing. Some of you must remember writing with chalk on your own slate? No school books in those early days but I still have some of my old reports In 1948. The headmaster was W H Goddard - anyone remember him? He was still there when I left to go to Barkers Butts in 1952. Post copied from topic D Di on 27th Jun 2018 7:49 am

Hi Diane - my dad went to Hill Farm though may have just moved on to King Henry's by then (he won a scholarship). Jack Yardley (though his real name was Laurie). I know my mate's mum went there as well - Sylvia Jackson although that was her married name - not sure what her maiden name was. She emigrated to Australia.
