Emlyn Passing On His Skills

Emlyn Passing On His Skills

This is Emlyn Jones passing on his football skills to some of the local youths of the day around 1957/58. It was sent to me by Alf Horrox who thought it was Bryn. Lesley-Ann, Emlyn’s granddaughter, confirmed that it is him and not Bryn.

Alf Horrox:
The picture is of him coaching primary school children from my school. Hamilton House primary school in Newstead Road Lee London SE12. Now demolished. He was the games coach and the photo is likely to be 1957/8 or a bit earlier.
We didn’t realise at the time of his prowess! He was a lovely man.
The location of the photo is Chinbrook Meadows at Grove Park – he took us by bus each games afternoon from the school.
