    Cardiff City 1970/71 - how many do you recognise?

    I can put names to all but two of the faces in this photo (second from right in the back row and third from left in the middle row) - how many can you recognise?

    I have thought of names for the two I couldn't get now, but I'm far from certain with either of them.

    The kit is the most striking thing, magnificent, no frills & white shorts & socks, just how it should be. Against All Blue Kit😡😡

    I think that photo is of the 69/70 squad rather than 70/71 (Frank Sharp and Fred Davies are there but not Frank Parsons or Ian Gibson). The two you mentioned I reckon are Freddie Pethard and Peter Morgan.

    I thought Pethard came later.74/75?

    I think it was taken in the summer of 1970 before the sale of Sharp, Davies and Les Lea and the signings of Parsons and Gibson and it is being sold on EBay as a photo of the 70/71 side, but you might well be right.

    Freddie Pethard was one of the names I came up with, but I thought the other might be Terry Lewis - he does look quite like Richie Morgan mind, but Peter Morgan is definitely in the team photo I use on the blog and I don't think that looks much like the bloke in this picture.

    No, he signed for us in 1969 according to Wikipedia - must admit I thought it was two or three years later than that.

    Freddie Pethard has curly hair. The back row guy might be him but Iím not convinced at all. I think Richie Morgan is there but 3rd from right in the middle (not left). My immediate thought was that 3rd from left was Gil Rees but Iím sure someone else would have called that out so itís probably not him either. Great pic though

    Definately looks like a young Freddie Pethard.
    When did Frank Sharp join?

    White socks were an innovation mind.

    Re: Cardiff City 1970/71 - how many do you recognise?

    Here's my stab at identifying all of the players;-

    Back row (left to right) Steve Derrett, John Parsons, Freddie Pethard, Les Lea
    Middle row (l to r) Mel Sutton, Leighton Phillips, Terry Lewis, Jim Eadie, Fred Davies, Richie Morgan, Dave Carver, Frank Sharp
    Front row (l to r) Bobby Woodruff, John Toshack, Brian Clark, Peter King, Don Murray, Brian Harris, Ronnie Bird, Gary Bell

    Another reason I don't think the photo was taken at the start of the 69/70 season is that Barrie Jones would have been in it surely?

    I found this photo online, which is basically the same one, apparently taken for the Real Madrid game in March 1971 but with coach and manager added and the players names at the bottom.

    Good work. That confirms Terry Lewis and Richie Morgan.

    However, I now realise that it must have been taken before November 1970, as Toshack went to Liverpool then. It must be from pre-season 1970/71.

    The players are easy to identify.... but what about all the trophies.

    The Welsh Cup is an easy spot, as is the Welsh League trophy.

    That's when I would say it was, but, as Binge Thinking points out, Frank Parsons and Ian Gibson, who were signed in the summer of 1970 are not in it, yet Les Lea, Frank Sharp and Fred Davies who were sold at that time are. Barrie Jones would have been in the picture if it had been taken before 69/70 because he sustained the injury which ended his career a few months into that season. My best guess is that it was taken around the time they reported back for pre season training before 70/71 at a time when the summer transfers hadn't been completed.

    My favourite kit of all.
    I would love white shorts & white socks back again permanently.

    One of them might be for the Welsh Soccer sixes which I seem to remember were held for a couple of seasons around then, there may be one or two cups the youth team (they reached the FA Youth Cup Final in 70/71) could have won - when did they spend all summer touring Australia and New Zealand, they may have won a trophy or two over there?

    What's that in-between Brian Harris's legs?

    City won the Welsh League in 1969-70 but not in 68-69 or 70-71 so that indicates it was the start of the 70-71 season - I think!

    Absolutely. I would love to see us return to white shorts and socks. Your point about ďno frillsĒ is very well made. Unfortunately sponsors names, additional badges on sleeves and shorts means that the days of such minimalism are gone.

    Another bit of nostalgia in the photo is that you can just see the old Radio Ninian building in the background. Was it someone called Glyn Potter who used to make the announcements from there and play the same old tired records ?

    I think that the hospital broadcasting used to relay their commentaries from there as well.

    We also won the South Wales FA Senior Cup every year from 1968 to 1975 so that's likely to be one of the cups.

    Re: Cardiff City 1970/71 - how many do you recognise?

    My mate was the youth team goalkeeper (John Williams - he played in the FA Youth Cup Final team) and I used to watch some of their games when they played at 'home' (was it Coronation Park) before the first team game at Ninian Park and they used to rattle up cricket scores so they probably won whatever league they were playing in too.

    Re: Cardiff City 1970/71 - how many do you recognise?

    For me it's the 69/70 photo as said above Fred Davies is there and he left for Bournemouth at the end of the season, Les Lea and Frank Sharp left for Barnsley in the summer too.

    Terry Lewis played one game in 1969/70 v QPR at home I think? So it seems logical that he is in the photo and I think he#s the player in the middle row. I'm not 100% sure but I think the player in the back row is John Parsons.

    Got to be the end of the 1969/70 season showing off all the trophies the club won, even if that team actually won just a couple of them.
