Images (Cricket) Unknown Team 2

The master looks like L.E. Dawson (from memory a Geordie) a maths master who was at KBGS when I started (our form master 1959/60) but left sometime later. Is the one on TED's right Wellock?

Anyone else recognise any of the lads?

Yes that master was called Dawson, but not sure he was maths. There was a Geordie Maths teacher called Frank Dowson though, he took us in first year. We gave him the nickname 'Jagetme', as after each line he wrote on the board , he would turn to the class a ask'Jagetme?'

Thats your opinion, but I beg to differ. Dowson taught me and was quite strong Geordie. Never had Dawson though.

I recognise a few of the lads in Unknown Team 2 and can name some.
Back row: Clarkson; Ronnie King; ? ; DAwson; Jim Butterworth; Brigg; Chappell;
Sitting: ? ; ? ; ?; ? ;?; Malc Binns.
I reckon this photo was taken in 1958 and that the team was the Colts XI
