Hi Margaret. Can you put any names to the other faces? The two lads, back row left, must be twins. (I put the 1953-54 football team in the Sports section)

As they were: Right fullback Tony Whitter, left back Stephen Owens(2nd right on back row), right half Brian Kellier, centre half Brendan Molloy, right wing Michael Walsh, left wing, Geoffrey Tomly, inside right Paul Fairhurst, inside left ? Horrocks, centre forward John Loftus(captain), reserve Philip Robinson(3rd frokm right back row), these are the names on the back of the photo but I couldn't tell you which is which, apart from the 2 above.

Thanks Margaret. When I first saw the photo the name Horrocks came to mind in relation to the two lads who look like twins. Probably wrong but never mind.

I'll hazard a guess that back-row right is Brian Kellier which leaves Brendon Molloy and Geoff Tomlin to be sorted out between front-row right and third from left back-row
