I'm guessing that this photo was taken early 50s. My brother Ernie Woodcock is back left and Dave Watkinson is the goalie in the middle. Other names on the back of the photo are Stanley Barton, B Taylor, R. Hughes, D.Worswick, K. Hunter, G.Cunliffe and D. Proctor.
Sadly my brother, Ernie Woodcock, passed away in 2015 and Dave Watkinson within the last twelve months.

Well spotted, Standisher, … and Cricket belt, if I may.

We called the "snake belts" cricket belts in the 50s.
Good photo and Good memories for you there Bill.
