This photo of the Mary Swanwick football team from 1901-1902 was posted on Facebook by Andrew Johnson who kindly gave me permission to reproduce it. On the front row proudly sitting behind the shield is A Carlile.
Sadly Sgt. Alexander Carlile was to die in France on 12th October 1916 and his obituary noted that he was a very keen and well known local footballer. His story can be read at https://oldwhittingtonops.com/carlile-alexander/
