  1. I met four of these lads (David Cockin, Jimmy Plant, Steven Dunning, and Leon Kirby) a few months after this pic was taken when we all started Hardwick Secondary Modern School in the September of 1969. I’m still very good friends with David and we meet up a few times a year as he now lives outside the area. His brother Ron signed for Coventry after being released by Leeds in the early 70’s.

  2. I remember a Ronald Cockin from my years at Stockton Grammar 1966 on, went into professional football, but can’t remember who with. Must be related to Cockin in this photo.

  3. The strip had obviously changed from black and red quarters, when I played for the team, to black and red stripes. Great establishment, great teachers, great community and I loved Mill Lane Boys’ School.
