Orkney v Shetland football

Orkney V Shetland 1965, as far as I can recall this was the last match played in the afternoon on a Friday when the shops shut and there were big crowds at the matches.
The player 3rd from the left is me, the no. 10 is Eric Hutchison, sorry for the quality of the pic, but we won that day 2-1.
For the younger guys looking at this the crowd was like this all the was round the Bignold and it did give you a great lift when they cheered you on in Orkney attacks like the one in the pic.
