1959 KGS Primary Football Champions

Got this photo of the 1959 KGS Primary Football Champions from John Craigie, who was in the team. I can provide the other players' names, but for now shall test site browsers from our era (and others) by leaving the challenge to identify them.

Back row: Far left Louis Munro
Front row: Jim Cromarty, John Craigie, John Sim, ?,?
A wild guess on the two on the front row would be Mally Johnston and Brian Stevenson

A wee question ,did the KGS mean Kirkwall Grammar School and if it did how did you get both Grammar School and primary or were they both at the council offices at the time ?

At that time Primary and Secondary were in the KGS. I daresay you are quite young if you don't remember it.

I think Jim and the late Roy would have been in Primary 6 at the time with the others in Primary 7.
