1977/78 because Fieldhouse didn't get into the 1st team until 79.


So why is he on the first team photo?

Its later than the 70's, don't think Phil Ford signed until 1980.

Also not sure that is Case rather than Waller, if it was Case who was playing hooker?

Can't be 80s because Dave Chisnall re-signed and the 80/81 strip was white with the chevron.
The very latest it can be is 79/80
So perhaps we signed Fordy in early 1980 then that'll make it at 79/80 team. So it whether we class 79/80 as an 70s or 80s team...or both.

OK. I can't remember clearly. In that is the case we must have played 80/81 in 2 strips??

It doesn't add up though. That must be no later than 80.

I'll wave the white flag here but it doesn't make sense because the 81 kit was white because I was ball boy in 81 with that very kit.

Could be, or is it Billy Pickup?

Think that's me in the background in the VP lounge by Tommy Martin's left ear. I used to sit there with my wife every match.

Ford was definitely post Summer 1980.

On the "who'd walk into the current side" debate

Ken Kelly
Hesford (for kicking)
and definitely Bevan.
Eccles
I don't remember too much about Tommy Martin
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

Top player. My favourite backrower, a proper footballer, great hands. I don't think eventually we could afford his pay demand's and Leigh had money to burn.
He'd walk into our team now. I was at Wembley in 75 but at an age not to remember that much...so my first memory was him giving the Aussie tourist an exhibition of toughness and ball skill..my best memory was probably his last game or not far his last, winning the JPS.

Tommy Martyn was a class act.
Our loss was Leigh’s gain when he left at the end of the 1981 season.
Still can’t believe he left us.

So the pic must have been early 1981.
