I'd say it was an Abertillery Youth Rugby team from the late 60s. I recognise (I think!) Jack Gamage as the bloke on the left of the middle row, used to live in Glandwr St. I dont know if Terry one of his boys is in it? in the back I can see Brian Davies (second from the left). Think that the 2nd player from the left in the middle row was the excellent prop Robert Jones who sadly died in a car crash near Crumlin at a time when he was just starting to play for Abertillery first XV. Used to have a nickname(oggi?), but not certain.

Didn't you send in the photo Carolyn? Very Happy

Yes I scanned it and sent it in on behalf of someone else but don't know all the names and only regonise one or two people on there. I only recognised Terry as we both attended Hafod-y-ddol. I know Brian because he married our next door neighbour when I was a kid
