John Lapsley and George Clark correct. Joe Sweeney the other.

Thanks. I remember the name and think he was a striker that came from Clydebank  but not much else. Is it Frank Welsh at the back next to Higgins?

Yes, Frank Welsh between Higgins and Watson.

Cormack also bought [but not part of the photo shoot] Andy Dunlop from StMirren.

This season we had lost the first 5 league games and had been trashed 5-1 by Ayr United.

Some decent players but I guess we’d ran out of good strikers after losing Somner, McAdam & Melrose

Jeez, need to keep this thread ahead of the "New Owners" tripe!

Boyle, Rowson, Little, Erskine, Hodge and McNamara. Mark Roberts is playing for the opposition, so it must be Ayr.

Cowan, Hogan, Hainey.  They played 3 times together at Easter Road.  Hogan played twice at full-back but this time he looks as if he's up with the forwards so going for a Scottish cup-tie 20/2/1965.  Hibs won 5-1.  Hogan was at No 9.  Gray, Campbell, Muir, Davis, Harvey, Cunningham, Cowan, Hainey, Hogan, Ewing, McPARLAND.  McParland scored first then the roof fell in.  Big No 5 looks like Jackie McNamara's dad.  Could be Harry Davis in the far distance.

I didn’t think McNamara senior played as early as that. Remember him from the early 70’s and more as a no. 4 rather than a centre half

I think we signed Joe Hogan as a number 9. I think there was a few Jags teams in that era, where most of the players played in  positions different when the signed from the Jags.

Who was the internationalist  junior goalkeeper we signed and then ended up as our centre-half?

PW, the goalkeeper you might be thinking about is Colin Brodie.  He played 3 times as a keeper but later played 7 times as a half-back or a full-back over the next few seasons (mid 50s).  Andy Kerr was of the same era.  He was the opposite of Joe Hogan in that he was signed as a full-back and converted to a centre-forward  of some distinction with PT and Kilmarnock.

I'm pretty sure that John Hansen was originally a striker or inside forward, before establishing himself as a fine right-back.

Was it not Alex Forsyth who started off as a midfielder? I certainly remember Ronnie Glavin starting with us as a center forward - I remember him scoring a last minute equaliser away at Hamilton Accies having come on for Jimmy Bone. (That was also the game where Alan Rough saved a penalty by heading the ball away, but that's another story...)

Joe Carson & Jukka Santala joined as centre halves and ended up as centre forwards. Kenny Watson was a midfielder who went back to defence. I’m sure there’s countless others over the years that moved positions after signing like Paul Paton and David Farrell

Christie Elliott being the most recent and obvious.

Very true, and he played a few positions as well

Will never forget Joe Sweeney a player who’d probably fit into our present side so poor a player was he. Think the Steedmans  must have been pissing themselves laughing when Cormack paid actual earth money for him.

Motherwell at home, hence the change strip and the referee's khaki top (though would that not equally clash with the Amber); old floodlights and just possibly the old betting booths in what is now the JLS.

1950s? 1-1 draw in the League Cup - wild guess - even wilder guess that it's Ian St. John in the middle.

I should know the  Jags player nearest the camera, but somehow don't. Shame on me.
