Comic football match at Staplefield

At the Whit Monday fete in Staplefield the local cricket club played a game of football against a team of ladies who were dressed, rather unfairly, in football strip.
The men lost the match 4-3, using the excuse that they were severely handicapped by their clothing and lots of padding!
In the back row, Vic Newnham from the Victory is showing a bit of leg, and further to the right are Joe Ray and, I think, Joe Sayers.
In the front row, second from the left is Roger Ray, followed by George Prevett and Les Pateman.
The team of ladies can be seen in picture #899.
Please can anyone name the others?
