Sunday puzzle: Who’s in this lineup?

image001

Walsall Wood FC 1967 team, can you put names to any of these faces? So far we have back row, from the left – Cyril Hart, Stuart Allman, George Martin, Bob Jones and ? Humphries; Front second left John Hyde and centre front, Stan Fellows. Image kindly supplied by John Hyde via David Evans. Please click for a larger version.

Here’s a great Walsall Wood photo supplied to the blog by David Evans, which was supplied by former Walsall Wood FC player John Hyde, who’s trying to put names to some of the faces.

I’ll let David explain:

Hi Bob

This very rare photo shows the Walsall Wood FC team in 1967, and has kindly been offered by former player John Hyde.

John remembers some of his team mates – he is seated in the front row, second from the left and by the captain Stan Fellows.

The back row, from the left – Cyril Hart, Stuart Allman, George Martin, Bob Jones and ? Humphries.

Sadly John is unable to remember all the names, and asks blog readers if they can help here, and, if possible, do any have in their private collections team photos from the years 1966 and 1968 to help John make a complete photo record of his playing years at Walsall Wood F.C.

Time is of the essence here, and all help gratefully received.

Of course, as is often the case the background of a photo has a historical importance and here we see the old Brocton Army Camp WW1 wooden hut… then the players’ changing rooms?

I would like to thank John for offering this photo and hope that a full team list will be possible in due course

Kind regards
David

Can anyone help here, please? It’s a great photo and I’m sure some readers out there will be able to offer names, and maybe help with the images requested.

Thanks to David for a great enquiry: please, comment here or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com. Thanks.
