I secured this photo at auction, cost a packet and no names on the back so I asked one of our members for help and he came up trumps (Cheers, Leslie).

England played Holland in a Youth international Friendly at Carrow Road on 5th November 1955. England won 3-1 amid all the rockets and bangers that must have gone off. Here's the photo:-



What I have is this:-

Keeper - Alan Collier (Luton)
Skipper (ball at feet) - Wilf McGuinness (Man Utd - right half)
To his right - Alan Peacock (Middlesbro - centre forward)
Behind Peacock - Peter Jones (Man Utd - centre half)

Now, I have all the names of the other players as Leslie kindly sent me the team line-ups from the programme, but I can't identify who's who, even though there are a few famous names, as follows:-

Ron Bradley (WBA - right back)
Ken Nicholas (Arsenal - left back)
Barry Cooke (WBA - left half)
R. Saxby (Arsenal - outside right)
Jimmy Melia (Liverpool - inside right - with hair!)
Andy Nicholas (Chelsea - inside left)
Fred Bunce (Watford - outside left)

Reserves:-

John Petts (Arsenal - wing half)
B. Webb (Leyton Orient - unknown)

Can anyone help me marry the faces with the names, please?

Incidentally, England's goals were scored by Peacock & Melia plus an og from De Haas (U.V.S), and Buis (Alkmaar) scored for the Dutch.

And if anyone would like to purchase, ask away but sit down when I reply.
