John, I simply could not resist making "enhanced" photos from such a good photo, hope you don't mind. Most of these players were subjected to my shouts of "encouragement" from the terraces, especially Billy. Marvellous memories.

Just imagine if these lads could play now with all the advantages of today's players.
