Readers are being urged to help in identifying this photo of an unknown Belper football team from the collection of Heage man Barry Howitt - taken in the 1920/30s.

Mr Howitt has been attempting to find more information on several photos of local sporting squads which have found their way into his possession in recent weeks with some success.

If you are able to identify any more of the players or name the local side pictured then please write in to 8 Heanor Road, Ilkeston, Derbyshire, DE7 8ER; leave them in our community postbox at News Corner, King Street or email to

If you have your own bygone picture you would like help with then please get in touch too.
