In answer to your question re. who is still in the industry and what year, here are my thoughts: Standing 2nd from left is myself(John Edwards), 3rd from right is Keith Healey. Kneeling 1st from left with his Leo Sayer hairstyle is Martin Beck, 4th from left is Colin Mallery and the year I would guess at 1978 maybe 1979.
Also faces I recognise who I think have retired or no longer in the business are Dennis Rawlings, Chris Bannister, Barry Cossell and Roy Jackson.

I just happened on this photo. I am Dave Walsh from New Zealand ,front row, fifth from left. I actually organised and captained this team, worked a few years for Ruffler & Deith in the spares dept. We were 1-0 down against Bell Fruit, then I scored a superb equaliser (Ha Ha!) and we went on to win 7-1. Can’t remember the names but do fondly recall the legendary poker games at Colin Mallory”s!
