Smelter Cup Final

The caption on the photo is:
'Smelter Football team beat Dingwall Caley in the Ross-shire Welfare League "Raigga" Cup final by 3-2, after extra time at Evanton. This picture shows the players and officials of the Smelter team after they had been presented with the cup.'

I came across this photo recently. Some names are missing and it would be good if anyone could fill in the blanks.
The photo is dated 1979 (of which I have no recollection!):
Back left to right:- Bill Arthur, Stevie Woods, Dave Cameron, Alan Webster,?, Alistair Mackay (Flapper), Gary Morris, Aggie Sutherland.
Front:- ?, Neil Benson, Charlie McKeddie, Bobby Robertson, Davie Valentine, Roy Machattie, Mike Raffan.

Hi Ali, good to see your memory is as sharp as your tackling used to be! Thought it was maybe Stan, but doesn't look like him if compared to next photo. Photo quality is poor though, so probably is Stan.

Great night I remember it well we deserved to win with a goal from Davie Val. Good to see you at Hamden Garry pity about the result.
