Invergordon Football between the Wars

An Invergordon football team in the early 1920s. Can you help identify the people in the photo?

Only positively identifiable one for me is Duguid (the photographer), 2nd left back row.

Middle Row, third from the right is my Grandfather Colin Urquhart, who used to work in the dockyard when they were building the tanks - his job was a riveter. His son Colin still lives with his wife Dot in Gordon Terrace.

Back row 3rd from right is my grandfather, Tommy MacKenzie from Saltburn who had a shoemaker's shop there but eventually became a postman working out of Invergordon Post Office. Saltburn also had a football club at this time for which my grandfather was the goalkeeper. I wonder why there are 15 players in this photo?

Good question Karen, I was wondering the same thing....were substitutes allowed back then?

Injury subs were introduced in 1965 and in 1966 subs were permitted for any reason. In earlier days, if you broke your leg you went into goals!
