This photo was sold to me as Manchester United v Preston. Fair enough, it's Tom Finney, so it could be Preston. But it's clearly not Old Trafford, or Deepdale, and it's not Man Utd. And it's not the PP Preston badge...

It is in fact, the Football League XI against the League of Ireland, at Goodison Park, and it's either 10.10.1951 or it's 7.12.1955. Tom Finney played in both games at Goodison Park. So my question concerns the goalkeeper because if I can get him, it confirms the date.

So on 10.10.51, the LOI keeper was Paddy Neville of Drumcondra.

And on 7.12.55, the keeper was Dinny Lowry of St Patrick's Athletic.

Does anyone know the answer? I'd be very grateful.


Thanks in anticipation. And the photo is available should anyone be interested in acquiring.

He looks like Dinny Lowry to me although before mytime. No idea what Neville looks like but Lowry was a legendary keeper in the 50's and 60's.

Here he is in another photo. Same guy?

Thanks Gary, it could be Dinny, the action shot is about 5/6 years before the team photo on that site - in the absence of more definite info on Paddy Neville, I'll go with that.

Cheers Thumbs Up
