    I thought John Short had a Sgt Bilko type haircut H?

    Any idea on the 2 at the front in the centre,one with the white shirt,and one wearing what looks suspiciously like a Pig shirt of that time?

    Is that Speight? He was at the club in 71 but I don't think he looked like that then. Dave Powell?

    Good call,

    Definitely none of the above, (IMO). He looks like hes getting so could be a coach but too much hair and not enough bulk for Short.

    He looks a bit like Doc Pace, maybe he was just training with us??

    I think the bloke in the white vest looks like Ken Wood, the Sheffield athlete. He was born (I think) about 1930 so would have retired from competetive athletics by then, but could have well been used to take them on pre-season runs. I’ll have a think about the players.

    Left to right: Hockey, Ford, Ken Wood, no idea, Barlow, Flynn?, Salmons, could be one or two who had that sort of silly haircut - possibly John Hope, no idea about the “owls shirt”, Colquhoun, Speight, Powell, Badger, can’t see the last two clear enough to have a guess.

    Ken Wood. Four minute miler.

    I remember Ken Wood doing a run around the ground in pre match entertainment. I think a runner called Simpson did as well.

    I remember that CJJ. Alan Simpson from Rotherham. Another good athlete, perhaps best at half mile, but both were sub-4 minute milers.

    Think that could be John Hope at the back of the one with the **** shirt on Ronnie.

    Definately Speight in the headband

    White shirt at the front looks like Geoff Salmons to me

    Flynn, Colquhoun, Hockey, Badger

    That's all I can recognise

    Did Ken Wood have a Hall named after him Ronnie, or was it a food mixer?
