Winners of the Journal Shield in 1958/59 were this team - the Boys’ Central School.

The photograph was sent in by Richard Phillips of Twyford Gardens in Grantham who is sat in the front row on the right.

Mr Philips said: “I remember winning the trophy but can’t remember who against.

“I’ve hardly seen any of them since. I left town and have been away for quite a few years but I’m hoping some people might recognise it.”

Does anyone know what became of the enormous Journal Shield trophy?
