Troedyrhiw - Football Team - Circa 1930's

Colin tells us: "Looking at the trophy they have obviously won the league or the cup for that year. The first player on the left in the front row is Bettie Brown a well-known player of the day who later played professionally. I think he also played for Merthyr amongst others. The only other person I recognise is the gentleman who is second from the right in the back row, a young Harry Lucas. Harry was a well-known showman and character of the day, he also owned and ran the local cinema, or “Picture Palace” as it was then called."
