Riding high at the top of the Second Division of the United Counties League were the all-conquering Symington’s Reserves.

The team had remained unbeaten in the 1950-51 season and in recent weeks had been ‘irresistible’.

Their progress through their fixtures was proving easy with the latest match won by a six-nil scoreline against St Ives.

To mark their phenomenal achievement, the team was photographed.

On the front row were G Garfield, D Cleaver, R Curry, E Kenney and E Nicholls.
