A Memory Tester!
We came into possession of this photo following the untimelty death of our good friend and former colleague, Steve Dunleavy, who is one of the players in the team. There was no prize for guessing what sport they played or where the photo was taken but we wanted to know the names of all the players in the team, when the photo was taken, and what was the official name of the team?
We also posted it on our Facebook page and received quite a few replies such that we now have most of the team and details as follows:-
It was, of course, our Prospect Police team (Standing (l-r) Archie Husbands, Merv "The Swerve" Willey, Jimmy "The Wop" Costello, unknown, Alan Keagle, Unknown, Stuart Donaldson, Ian Waddington, and Paul Wakefield. Kneeling (l-r) John Price, Unknown, Ray Bell, Peter Borland, Steve Dunleavy, and Alan Wilkinson. Stuart Donaldson says there were about 4 civilians in the team so they would be the three listed as "Unknown" plus Ian Waddington. Probably taken circa 1974.
Prospect Football Club - circa 1974
