Hi all.
A group of us at Rovers have been trying to find a picture of every player that has made a Football League appearance for us.
Up to the end of last season 972 have played of which we have found a picture of 970 of them. The two guys below are the ones where we have failed to find a pic and the years they played for us. I have no idea where they played before us or where they went afterwards.
Long shot I know but should anyone have any info or even better a pic of either of these guys please give me a shout.

Edward Lee Harvey. 1921-22.
George Charles Littlewood. 1929-30.

See here for our progress so far.

George Charles Littlewood. 1929-30. - I found this

http://nonleaguematters.co.uk/.....=364888806

Can anyone help track down details, please, on another player whose career started at Brierley Hill Alliance? George Charles Littlewood was born in Tipton, fourth quarter 1899 and died in Cheltenham, 5 Aug 1965. He was with BHA, 1924-25, 1925 to West Brom, May 27 to Worcester City, 14 Feb 30 to Bristol Rovers, 29 Oct 31 to Badminton and Acton Turville FC. He was a schoolmaster at one point at Badminton School, Gloucestershire and played cricket for the Bristol side Cotham CC. Does anyone know much more about him, other than the one League game he managed (12 Apr 1930 v Bournemouth)? Anyone have an accurate date of birth, please? Very grateful, as always.

Apart from the other sides mentioned you could try the school (Badminton) which likely has school photos back to this era - either try the school itself or the Old Badmintonian Association
