Alan, of Russells Close, East Preston, is pictured on the far left of the back row and believes the photo was taken during the 1951/52 season.

He can remember the names of all but one of his teammates (second from left on the front row) and is hoping Herald and Gazette readers might be able to fill in the blank.

Alan said: “I think the one I can’t remember might be Packer Freeborn, but I’m not certain.

“It would be interesting to find out if any of the guys are still around as we’d all be in our 80’s now.”

Pictured on the back row, from left to right, are: Alan Cooper, Clive Morgan, Brian Wells, Peter Harris, Les Cunningham and Gerry Scutt.

On the front row are John Carver, unknown, Roger Tester, “Bill” Kilhams and Ray Peskett.
