Glengall Road School Football Team 1919/20. In the second row, second from left, is Frederick Gibson, of Marshfield Street. This school had a proud traditiion of football success. In the 1890s and 1900s, several players from the school went on to play professionally; though the tradition and connections may have been disrupted by the First World War, no doubt the boys knew all about their history.
