Front row third from left, is it Steve Donlan?
I remember Steve Donlan, played at Wembley against Hull, his pace was deceptive, he was slower than he looked.
Mercer you fool, that's not Steve Donlan, Donlan played centre, there's no way that mon third from the left ever played centre.
Mercer, front row third left is Bobby Ball, I'd know him anywhere, even without his braces on. Rock on Tommy!
wrong ste - Danny & Malc on same photot just means one thing!
Ball & Boot was shut for re-furbishment that day!
steve peet 2nd right front row.
If its mid 80s, front row 3rd from left must be Malc Hollands grandson.
I think that is "Geoff" Gregson on the front row right hand side. Not sure if his Christian name is Geoff.
It was Geoff Gregson broady who was taken from us much too soon - good player, good ref and a good bloke
behind him is Bill Woodcock
At least 5 of that team were at the reunion Sat 30th March. If that is Graham Smith 3rd from left back row 6 and he is still playing amazing. The reunion was great so many old faces and happy memories!
Bryn Gregory? Front row 2nd from left.
George Winstanley next to Malc,possibly Neil Telford the other side of George ?
not Neil Telford Walter - thats Paul Winstanley
Steve Peet front row 2nd from the right.
What's Malcolland doing smiling? Must have bought a round,(an unusual event in itself), given the barman a fiver and got change for a tenner. Can't think of any other reason
Back Row 5th from the Left++++ Alan Waters
very sorry to hear the news today
RIP Eddie Powell 27th dec 2013 - back row 2nd left
top player, top coach but most of all...top guy!
never forget you pal
