OUR new Nostalgia pages seem to be going down well with readers from the comments we have received, and we’ve had a request to print this photograph from Lydgate United’s golden days online.

The image sent to us by reader Malcolm Ashworth, who now lives in Lytham, captures an era, the hairstyles placing it in the 1950s.

It is of Lydgate United Football Club’s B team, who won their league, the Burnley Combination Division Two, in the 1958-59 season.

Lydgate were involved in football in the town for a century, and were one of the clubs which became Todmorden Borough, who represent the town in the West Lancashire League
