I would guess it's nearer 1968 and it's a Junior Inter County team.

A bit cheeky comment from someone who knows little about football - possibly an late 60s/early 70s Inter county team as there is a mixture of west Mainland & east players. Back left Eddie Spence, ? Byers,Alan Flett, Jackie Walter, Sandy Keldie, Geordie Leonard.
Front Left ?? Alistair Muir,Mike Stout, John Dowell, ? Rorie. Sorry memory for names is not good - get Jocky Wood on the case!

The above Football Team is the Orkney Junior Inter County Team photographed before their match in Shetland 1968 or 1969. Shetland won 1-0 watched by a very big crowd on a beautiful evening. I was the goalkeeper.

It must be a DounbyTeam - Eddie Spence is back left and Geoge Leonard back right.

I think it is Edwin Spence from Dounby - back row left
I think it is Dennis Leonard from Sandwick - back row right
