Mystery football team

Ok a little while ago I asked for help identifying what I thought was Orphir Football Team, (thanks for all the help esp from the rest of our family). So on to this one all i can tell you is that the development date is the same Oct 1962 I am assuing that this is the team Orphir beat for the cup they are holding. Good luck

I am guessing this must be a Sandwick team - I believe that is Davie Stockan in the middle of the back row.

The team is South Sandwick Primary 1962. First photograph of goalkeeper,George Leonard, aged 9.
It was a really wet miserable day and my memory is of an Orphir lady giving me sweeties at the end of the game. The team is back row: Derek Stockan, Alaister Skea, David Stockan, Ronald Sinclair, Ian Coupland. Front Row: ?? (possibly a Spence boy, George Leonard, George Craigie.

Is that Geordie Leonard with the ball at the front?
I'll guess it might be Davy Stockan in the middle of the back row.
Possibly a Sinclair o' Unigarth and a Slater in there too?
If any of them are right then it could be a Sandwick school team.

No wonder Orphir won, did Sandwick only have 8 players?
