Local historian Terry Ainsworth takes a look back at a football team from Christ Church Primary School in Lancaster.
My daily walk takes me to almost every corner of Lancaster and while strolling up East Road to Williamsons Park I came across the old Christ Church School.
For such a small school it was remarkable how they turned out so many excellent footballers who went on to play in the North Lancs League.
I believe the school closed in 2003 and its date of construction would have been sometime in the 1850s but hopefully this series of photographs will bring back happy memories for many Lancastrians.
In 1936 Christ Church lost in the final of the William Smith Junior Shield at the annual Easter Field competition on the Giant Axe. They went down bravely to Dallas Road School by 1 goal, 4 corners to 0 goals, 0 corners.
