Looking through the link I came across the name (Jack)John Bramwell footballer from Ashton is anyone in touch with him or knows anyone that is, as we were at school at the same time and he married the girl that live next door to us.

The reason for asking my brother Ralph & Jack were good friends both on and off the field and they have lost touch with each other over the years,I know Jack and Ralph would love to have a chat with each other so if anyone can help
