Horwich Park 1930

Photograph sent in by Derek Boothby

Derek added :

The photo is inscribed on the back 'won by Horwich Park 1930'. It is possible to make out 'Stockport & District' on the large cup but nothing else is legible.

The gent posing with them is my dad, Wilf Boothby (not to be confused with my elder brother, also Wilf). I am curious to know why he has them.
Was he associated with the club? Does anyone have any information?

A possible explanation is that at the time he worked for Cooper & Pearson and lived above the shop in Market Street (I think Burgons and later the Coop in the 1940s and 50s) and that the cups were loaned for display. The photos were almost certainly take at the back of the shop.
