Buslingthorpe Vale Rugby Club, team photograph
Undated. Team photograph of the Buslingthorpe Vale Rugby League Club. The date is unknown but a cup displayed at the front shows that they have had a successful season. The team's ground was situated by the junction of Meanwood Road with Grove Lane.

I submitted this photograph and I think it was taken in the late 1920's or early 1930's when Bus' Vale had an all-conquering team. My mother's older (Woodhead) brothers are prominent in the front row. Walter (born 8/3/1900) is in the centre with the ball, behind the cup, Harry (born 14/9/1895) is sat on his left-hand side and Eddie (Edward born 16/8/1893) is sat at the left-hand end in the suit and tie.

I think this is 1934, I am sure that the first player (not in a suit) on the right end of back row is my dad, Charlie Dean (Charles Kilvington Dean). I still have a clock with a plaque, LDRL Champions 1933/34. He went on to play for Leeds up to about 1938. Can anyone confirm that I am right?
