        On the left is Huw Davis, who I believe had been to Cambridge and played outside-half there, he was supplementary year. Next two not known, next is Emyr Ab Iowerth from Rhyl, 1960 year. He was a good footballer and was with Arsenal. He gave up the chance of a football career to be a teacher. Next to him is Bernard (Bunnie) Hughes, 1961 year from Treforest.
