I can name a few of these great players, but can anyone name them all?
Added by Fred Johnston on 29 October 2011
I'll have a guess at some of the names. Back Row,
Bill Sim ( Thorfinn)?, ?.

Middle. Jim Donaldson (Thorfinn), Davie Fox (Thorfinn), John Donaldson( Thorfinn), Jackie Hutchison (Dounby), Magnus (Mugga) Tait (Stromness).

Front. Russell Croy( Rovers), Freddie Hutchison (Dounby), Arthur Dainty ( Holm).

In my opinion, this was the best ever Orkney team.

The missing two on the back row are Arnold Rendall Tankerness goalie and Jock Cusiter from Orphir.

Who did Arnold Rendall play for? I think that Jock Cursiter played for Rovers.
