A former Ballyclare Primary School pupil contacted the Times this week with details of this school hockey team picture that featured in last week’s edition.

Former school principal George Brown had supplied the photo of a trophy-winning hockey team from the 1970s, but didn’t recall the names of the girls pictured.

Irene Campbell, nee Fears, got in touch to say that she was in the same year as the girls in the picture, but wasn’t sure why there were only six players in the team.

She named the girls in the picture as (from left) Ruth Kirk, Lorraine Blake, Angela McRoberts, Nora Thompson, Eleanor Montgomery and Roberta Crothers. They are pictured with (from left) principal George Brown, teacher Mrs McMullan and vice-principal Sam Stewart. It’s thought the photograph was taken during the 1973/74 academic year.
