Billy Bingham in Elmgrove Soccer Team (1940s)

Billy Bingham

Billy Bingham was manager of the Northern Ireland football team and was a former pupil of Elmgrove Primary School. This is taken from a photocopy so I must apoligise for the poor quality of the picture. 



Under the photo are names (one or two names are diffiuclt to read so may be incorrect)
Back Row : Mr. Mc Ilveen, E. Witherspoon, J. Clarke, N. Reid, Mr. Arnold, R. Adair
Front Row : R. Williamson, R. Fulton, B. Bingham, D. Henry, S. Ritchie, G. Mitchell, N. McShane

The photo was used in the Belfast Newsletter Tuesday April 3 1945. The occasion was the final of the the Schools' Football Cup at Cliftonville and they team played against Larne Technical. Unfortunately the paper does not report the score!
