Wilf Ward named most of the people. The photo is from the early 1950's. Wilf was the first player to sign for Whitecroft. He signed in the bar in the Miners Arms in Whitecroft. Whitecroft did not have a football team before that.

The nickname of the team is "The Greeks".

Thanks also to Paul Gwynne, Jennifer Smith, Geraldine Henderson, Dave Powell and Wilf Ward.
