I think this is another one for Alan. Unmistakable figures of Vic and Bill. However others don't seem to tie in with the name captions. Back row, A J Christie is the tall guy with the glasses rather than Charman. Is that not Colin Wood next to Rob Lane (scorer)? Front row - looks like Mathie on the left end. Phil 'Fingers' Simmons had v fair hair and is not (imo) the guy next to the unmistakable figure of Geoff Evans in the middle. Looks a bit like Nigel Turk front row, 2nd right, but could be wrong. A look at my 'Bourne' suggests that the picture is 1st XI 1966 and the name caption is 1965.
