This photograph dates to c.1949. Move the mouse over the image for the names.

The above photograph was taken at a time when "every street had their own cricket team". The matches took place at the Cwmamman Recreation Ground, Garnant. It is believed that the Coronation Road team lasted for approximately seven years. All but two of the above players resided on Coronation Road, Garnant. The man at the back left (Will Carver) in the collar was not a clergyman, but was known for his sense of humour and wore the collar as part of a joke. It is said that whilst on a trip with the team, Will was greeted by a real clergyman who took it upon himself to dine and entertain him for the day, unaware that his collar was a fake!

Thanks to Nevin Anthony for the above image and information.
