Just got hold of an original press photo depicting Birmingham & Chelsea purportedly from the 1945/6 season - 10th November 1945 has been written on a backing card.

The players shown are Gil Merrick and I think it's Fred Harris of Birmingham (who have both signed it) and Len Goulden of Chelsea who's challenging Merrick.

I can't find this fixture so in that season I reckon it must be the League South game - Birmingham were champions in the last of the war-time years. Can anyone please confirm that this is indeed from that game on that date with those 3 players taking part? And I assume it is St Andrews?



Thank you in anticipation

Sherlock

Hello

I'm no expert but I don't think that's St Andrews.

The far side shown is not the KOP and as far as I'm aware, the opposite stand has never had the ''press box'' thing on the top

I may be wrong, just doesn't seem to fit the bill

Will keep looking

cheers

Thanks Steve

I reckon it's at the Bridge as I've been told just now that Birmingham played Chelsea at St Andrews on 3rd Nov and the fixture was reversed the following week.

Cheers
