THIS motley bunch of youngsters were the Long Bennington version of the Bad News Bears - desperately seeking a new manager.

The photograph was taken in March, 1992, as the young players were looking for a new manager.

The Journal reported on the story after ten-year-old Matthew Barlow wrote in asking for the paper’s help.

The players were almost all from the village but had been playing for different teams when they got together in the hope of starting up their own side.

l Can you update us on this story? Was the Long Bennington team formed in the end? Send your memories to: comment@granthamjournal.co.uk
