Pease Pottage cricket club take on Crawley

The minnows of Pease Pottage cricket team took on the might of Crawley at the start of WWII, but on this occasion the home team of Crawley won by 79 runs. Of course, Crawley was but a small market town then.
I cannot name any of those from Crawley, but from Pease Pottage, on the extreme left, is umpire Albert Cordingley (former Yorkshire C.C. player).
Sitting, from the left, are 3rd Joe Ray, 5th Gerry Ray (Capt), 7th Nelson Cook, 9th Roger Ray.
Please can anyone add more names?

I've put the photo and description on "Memories of Crawley" which is on Facebook and I'm already getting interest with some names.
I have included a link so hopefully you may hear something.
