Help us identify every’old Iron’ from this image

ClaretandHugh Facebook Group member Mike Miler has provided a great old picture which makes a bit of a mind bender for passionate older Irons.

Looking at this lovely old image of the 1958 team will bring back some wonderful memories and Mick BELIEVES he knows them all from top to bottom but isn’t 100 per cent sure..

So this evening please help us identify  each of the Hammers in this great memory jerker. One or two of them will quickly come to mind but there are one or two which may stretch you a bit further.

Simpler time …happy times ….and guess what?

It mattered just as much back then as it does now.

  1. John Bond.-Ken Brown-Noel Cantwell-Malcolm Allison-A Malcolm-Mike Grice-Johnny Smith-Wil;liam Billy Dare-John Dick-Malcolm Musgrove-Noel Cantwell

    Keeper-Ernie Gregory

  2. My first game was 8th October, 1955 v Plymouth, these very well.

    They are from the top down:

    Ernie Gregory, Malcolm Pyke, Andy Nelson. Vic Keeble, Noel Cantwell, John Dick, Ken Brown, Bill Lansdowne, Andy Malcolm, Mike Grice, Malcolm Musgrove, John Smith and Billy Dare.

    They were happy days.

  3. I left out John Bond at Number 2 between Ernie Gregory and Malcolm Pyke.

  4. Bloody hell, Noble hasn’t aged a day!

  5. My first season as a Hammer so I should be able to help, but time has taken its toll. About half I know for sure. Most look familiar – especially Noble’s grandad as Neil points out! But although I could have listed most of the names, matching them all to the faces was more of a problem. Interesting that no Mooro. I thought he broke through in 1958, but could be just another trick of the memory. Must have been around then.

    Anyway thanks for digging that up Hugh. Something to cheer us up on a miserable day after a miserable season is much appreciated. Keep up the good work 😀😀😀
