Kirkwall Primary Football Champions Sweyn

We played Erlend team in the Final at the Bignold Park in 1964. I don't remember the score. The only football trophy I ever won!

Anyone want to supply names?

Nice matching team socks ! Erlend Tait with the "macho" style socks over the shinguards. I can see Robert Mack, ? Craigie, Ronnie Johnston, Banger Hill, Ian Burns , Eoin Sutherland and maybe John Dowell.

I think it looks a bit like Robert Mack fourth from the left at the back. We started school together at South Walls School, Longhope in 1957 but they moved when his father became the Director of Education at the Grammar. Might be wrong though for I never saw him again and at that time he was just about six years old.
