Westmorland 1972 football team

We won the Auckland Shield thanks to some very skilful ABs and Cadets. Undefeated on the NZ coast, including beating an SSA passenger ship and drawing with Dunedin City in one of their pre season warm ups. I was in goal looking after the **** and beer. The only name I can recall is Dave? Kirkman, 2/E front right. Could be Bruce McFarlane C/E second left front. I believe the photo was taken on Mount Eden, Auckland.

Chap to the right of the goalie was sos from Plymouth i think.
Chap front left was an AB.Dont remember his name.

I wondered if you would remember this. Now you have jogged my memory, it looks like the 2nd mate. A good bloke who managed to talk me in to helping with the chart corrections.

Hiya mate ,cruising through the gallery when I came across your pic I believe this pic was probably taken on Mt Albert or Owairaka Domain to give it its proper name now ,played fitba up here many times over the years last time was on the Auckland Star in 75 when we got gubbed by the wharfies ,we were still pished from the night before,i live in Auckland now been here since 89 when I finished up , I d forgotten this place until about 8 years or so ago I dropped my lad off at his mates home in Mt Albert and decided to take my dogs for a walk ended up here and thought fk me this is where we used to play fitba ,kind of spooky it was ,take it easy mate Alex
