This is the first photo of the team we have at Holly Park with the team sporting our orginal colours - purple shirts with maroon sleeves, white shorts and purple & black socks. Given the players on the picture it is an early season one as Bowers signed for Bolton Wanderers in December 1935.
The old Allerton railway signal box and railway signals are in the background towards Cheshire Lines. The team are facing the stand. The ground surround is bar and post with no cover visible which would come soon after. Picture courtesy of Neil Garnett

Team picture was in Liverpool Echo on Saturday 10th April 1937 (thanks to Chris Adams). Picture taken pre Lancashire Combination game at Holly Park on Saturday 3rd April 1937 against Leyland Motors.

Back Row (l-r): Reg Owens (Trainer), Billy Murray, Bill Roper, Aaron Hurst, Ernie Dodd, Jack Pilling. Front Row (l-r): Jimmy Jones, George Jones, W. Maurice Jones, Len Salmon, Tommy Jones, Freddie Urmson.
An interesting picture as it doesnt include Jack Roscoe who was injured and out the side from December 1938 to about early Feb 1939 so this picture is likely from that period.
