Good knowledge. I only knew a few, bit before my time. Is that just before H Kendall came in?

I think the game was against Accrington Stanley and playing against them was part of the deal which saw David Hargreaves sign for us. A quick search shows he signed for us in December 1977 so it appears he was a Jim Smith signing. He was only with us for a couple of years so it looks like you are right about it being slightly before Kendall.

Maybe Parsonblue can but a bit more meat on the bones.

Who can name them all and is that keeper still available!?

There are 4 players , that would walk into the present team but not sure goalkeeper  Neil Ramsbottom would ...

This photo puzzles me , this must be the team that got relegated ???

Surely Hargreaves had gone back to Stanley by then...

I could be wrong but looking at some of the players it's more of a reserve team. If I get chance later I'll check in one of the history books.

Definately not a first team , a lot young lads in the team  ..Stuart metcalfe , John Bailey and Noel were regulars in the first team and so was John Butcher , I remember Ramsbottom being signed around the time of Duncan Mckenzie but I could be wrong , a long time ago..

It looks to be the sort of line up you'd send to play in a pre-season friendly at a non league team. One or two first team regulars and the rest mostly reserves.

The game was played on May 4th 1978 which was after the season had finished. The match was a 3-3 draw. For the league games we used the following players:

 Bradshaw, Curtis, Bailey, Metcalfe, Fazackerley, Hawkins, Brotherston, Hird, Mitchell, Parkes, Waddington, Svarc, Lewis, Taylor, Wagstaffe, Keeley, Butcher, Round, Wood, Fear, Hargreaves and Radford.

So essentially a reserve team.

A time machine could take you back to before world war 1 to see Crompton's Rovers winning the title with Eddie Latheron and Danny Shea.

Or to see Harry Healless, Roscamp, Puddefoot etc. I would love to have seen Ted Harper and some of the goals he scored.

But the games I would love to re-watch ( I saw them as an 11 year old) is Rovers 9 Middlesbrough 0 in 1954 I think and Rovers 8 Bristol Rovers 3 when Briggs scored his 7.
