 Name these players (please!)!
Topic Originator: Stanza

The Heritage Trust recently acquired several glass negatives of DAFC players of the mid/late 1950s. Most of them we recognise, but we are struggling with these ones - can anyone help?

Looks like Bobby Kirk. This is a photo of him from Hearts website circa 1956.

The top one is Ryan Christie. He hasn't aged at all in 70 years. Had no idea he played for us before Celtic.

Have you asked any surviving players from that era who may recognise ex-team mates, Stanza?

It might help if you could name the players you have identified.
Could make it a bit easier to fill in gaps....It was a while back!

From suggestions made here and elsewhere:

No 1 is Bill Dunn (confirmed by his wife and son).
No 2 - no suggestions so far.
No 3 it's been suggested this could be Bobby Kirk - can anyone confirm this?
No 4 seems to be Ernie Turner (identified by 2 people).

In the thread on the Heritage Trust Facebook Page there is a link to other pics of Bobby Kirk, so you are probably right - well remembered.

I didn’t know he was a footballer in his early years but if that’s the Ernie Turner that played golf at Pitreavie GC you’ve got your man
......... age the picture & my guess is that’s him

I knew him through the 70’s right into the millennium, he was a character & 1/2 who is sadly no longer with us
