Reader Mrs Joan Owen brought in this photo from her family album.

The picture shows the St Wilfrid’s School cricket team, with their headmaster and a teacher.

Mrs Owen said she wasn’t sure what cup the team had won.

She added that the boys in the photo would have been aged between 15 and 18 and it was taken in the 1920s.

All the boys are also thought to be from Haywards Heath.

Her father Arthur Kingsbury is in the photo on the back row, and so is her uncle.

The former St Wilfrid’s School was on the junction of Church Road and South Road, in Haywards Heath.

It was built in 1856 to serve as both a school and a temporary place of worship for Anglicans in the town.

In 1951 the school expanded and moved to a new site.

The building became a Christian Science church and reading room, and is now a Zizzi Italian restaurant.
