I got most of those (inc. Les Graham), with the exception of Peter Nicholson, John Murray and John Hughes. I've seen pictures of Hughes and Murray before but Nicholson?...not a clue.
I got all the players-probably because I was a saddo who didn't have a girlfriend and went to reserve games. :)

Everton goalscorers were John Morrisey and Jimmy Husband. Ground was so packed people were sitting on the touchlines. Massive cheer from Pool fans when Tony Green came on as sub in his first lg appearance after a year out from injury.

I had to post this. Not football but there are two types of person: Those that remember Derby Baths and those that don't! I never got to the top board but still get angry that we demolished this beautiful building

spent half my childhood in there, can still smell it, and wire baskets for your clothes taken by attendants (that would be a novelty now), top board glory as they blew the whistle to clear the diving area guaranteeing the full attention of pool and poolside, bought my first pack of cigs out of the machine in cafe . Season ticket every birthday, clearly parent/s glad to get rid of us. Every pool since has been an anti-climax. It was a crime to demolish an art deco building like that , to build a bland featureless and soulless'hotel'.

Super photo. When I was a kid I got talking to an old guy at a match and I asked him how long he'd supported Blackpool he replied that he'd been coming long enough to remember when the ground was painted in blue and white. Great to see a pic of us playing at home in this kit.
my grandad might have been playing in that game (for Preston :))
