This team called the Newbold Verdon Grasshoppers were not actually a school team as most people had left the school and moved on to Market Bosworth High School by the time this photo was taken. However; Malcolm Mould assisted with the training as well as allowed the team to use the primary school facilities. A slight cheat in primary school years maybe but important to show that Malcolm continued to support the youth of Newbold Verdon even after they had left the school.

Many thanks to Robert Webb for not only sharing this photograph, naming everyone but also providing the history behind it.
