This must be one of the earliest photos of a football team in Newnham - 1909. With the River Severn in the background the location would appear to be Brightlands Field, home of Newnham Cricket Club and formerly the playing field of Brightlands Prep. School. However, as Brightlands only moved to Newnham in 1908, I wonder if they would have acquired their playing field at this time? Any information on this photo would be appreciated".
