Can you spot yourself in these classic sporting photograph line-ups?

Flashback 1962 pictures for EADT Nov 8April 28. Ipswich Town Football Club won the Second Divi

Ipswich Town won the Second Division Championship in the 1960-61 season and everybody said would never be able to stay in the first division. The club surprised everybody by winning the league championship that very next season. In the final match of the campaign at Portman Road they defeated Aston Villa 2-0 while Chelsea, who were already relegated, went to Burnley and held them to a draw. In this moment of history for the “Cinderella Club” Ray Crawford dived to score the first of two goals after team mate John Elsworthy’s header hit the bar. Ah! What days!

Well, our features on classic sporting photographs are proving popular.

So, here are some more. Are you in any of them? Hope you like our main photo of Ray Crawford heading Town to Championship glory in 1962.

SUFFOLK LADIES POOL TEAM... 2002

Well, what a trophy-laden photograph this is. It's the Suffolk ladies pool team with the inter-county trophy which they won in Great Yarmouth after a play-off win over Lancashire.

This pic is also on Suffolk Sporting Memories if you wish to help with names. We think it was taken in 2002.

Now, it's not often we know nothing about a sporting photograph. But we know nothing about this one!

It just says Electricity football team. Whether that's Eastern Electricity, Southern Electricity or Northern Electricity, we know not! We jest of course.

So, if you want to help with this, head over to Suffolk Sporting Memories on Facebook, where we will put the photo as well, so you can update us with names.
