I reckon it's Old Trafford and Man United on 29th Dec 1951.

It's dated 10th Jan 1952 so it fits.

Can anyone please confirm, and advise who the United player might be?

Many thanks as always

Got to throw a spanner in the works here----Harold joined Bolton in January 1952 and so it cannot be United. Also, the defenders socks look like Chelsea, do not recall United having double hoops (on the socks) in that era.

Could it be an earlier match in 1951 at Stamford Bridge when Huddersfield Town (possibly in their away kit) lost to Chelsea 2-1 with Harold scoring for the Town.

Was it to highlight his all round abilities to the Wanderers fans?---being passed onto the local press (Bolton) by one of the agencies?

I've been having a similar conversation with our resident United expert.

He doesn't recognise the "United" player, nor the ground, though he thought it might be Maine Road due to the white wall.

Kit-wise it does look like Chelsea, I agree, and as you say they played Bolton long before Harold joined. So therefore it may be that Chelsea v Huddersfield game from 15th Sept 51.

I will find another oracle to check. Thank you for your help.

Chelsea v Huddersfield 15th Sept 1951

Hassall for Huddersfield in change kit.

Bobby Campbell for Chelsea and in background Johnny McKenna of Town.

Problem solved.

Thanks all.
