    A picture of my old Dad who passed away in March, he gave me the skyblue blood in the early 80s. Cant face going now after 24 years a season ticket holder, we decided not to renew this year until sisu fook off. Well it seems Dad did and God knows how I will feel the first game this year.:depressed:

    In those days there were no first team squads. but we had a cracking reserve team to pick from. No such luxury of three subs and a 7 man bench to chose from.

    Notice the impeccable shirts - not a sign of any sponsor's logo!

    The only issue I take with the photo is it shows only the present team. Missing is George Hudson who was sold by that time but who was perhaps the greatest contributor in our rise through the divisions.

    Can anyone name all the players? There's a couple I don't recognise.

    PS: I love the socks, it's what makes the strip interesting. The collar and cuffs are also brilliant.

    No Dave Clements. I thought he was our full back in 66-67.

    I believe he was just starting out in 1967, might have still been an apprentice.
    Not a regular first-teamer at that point.

    Surprised he's not there.
    The ones I recognise are (left to right)
    Back Row: ?, George Curtis, Bill Glazier, ?,?
    Middle row: Ron Farmer, Dietmar Bruck, John Tudor, ?, Ernie Machin, Brian Hill
    Front row: ?, Ian Gibson, Jimmy Hill, Bobby Gould, Ronnie Rees.

    I'm sure John Key and Mick Kearns are in there somewhere.

    I remember him breaking into the first team after we were promoted, around 1969ish I think. I can't be certain of actual dates these days.
    Definitely remember seeing a reserve game & my mate commenting on Willie having good season & likely to play in first team soon.

    I was looking through an old programme from the following season and a name I had totally forgotten popped out of the team list on the back page-Pat Morrissey, who was part of the squad in 66-67. Willie Carr also made his debut in 67 in the first division.
