    Sorry to say, no
  • Good one Colin- the season before I started watching regularly.
    Is the reserve goalkeeper Nicky Schroeder ?
    Sitting on the grass - far left is Mark Hopkins. Also guessing that the 3 between Dallin and Morris are Leighton Harvey. Mark Gray and Anthony James - but I don't know which is which.

  • No, wrong about the keeper Jeff.
    Mark Grey and Anthony James are wrong, sorry
  • Come on Colin , just tell us who they all are , recognise  2 but can't  remember their names ,

    Is the keeper Fredricksen ?
  • Hi Colin How about: Back row: Harry Griffiths, Glen Davies, Geoff Thomas, Wyndham Evans, Paul Harris, Steve Thomas, Steve Potter, Nigel Williams, Dave Bruton, Andy Leitch, Peter Abbott, Robbie James, Alan Curtis, John Charles, Roy Saunders. Middle row: Pat Lally, Jan Bekker, George Smith, Geoff Bray, Danny Bartley. Front row: Mark Hopkins, Nigel Stevenson, Nigel Dalling, Steve Davies, Leighton Harvey, Micky Long, Steve Morris.

    Well done Niall. I did think a young Robbie James was Jeff Griffiths but Griffiths arrived 12 months later
  • Can you name the four young professionals with coach Jimmy Rimmer.
  • ? , Nigel French, Andy Melville, Keri Andrews
  • Maybe Jimmy  Loveridge  , agree with others
  • It's not Loveridge and the other three are correct.
  • Maybe Paul Burrows  ,  not sure
  • It's not Loveridge and the other three are correct.
    looks like Bob Geldof to me  B)
  • I believe the youngster on the left is Wayne Elsey.
  • Here's a first team photo from the same era, start of 1985/6.

  • Tommy Hutchinson  , Evans,  Nigel Stevenson  , Mike Hughes , Dudley Lewis , Paul Price ,
    Colin Pascoe , Colin Sullivan  , Chris Marustik , Keri Andrews  ,Ian Love 

    Pretty sure on 9 or 10  of them

    You’re right with the majority there, Malc.  Not Evans & not Ian Love, though.
  • Maybe Ian Davies and Robin Turner

    Robin Turner’s right.

    The last fella was a new signing who didn’t play often for the Swans, although he’d featured in an FA Cup Final only a year or so earlier.
