Handcross Park cricket team

There are no details attached to this picture but there seems to be there is no doubt that it is of Handcross Park cricket team.
The building in the background is of the old Handcross Park house which was destroyed by fire in 1935. (See picture #1145)
Standing on the extreme left is the umpire, Albert Bartlett, and seated in front of him is the scorer, William Creasey.
It is difficult to name the others, but comparison with other pictures on the website may produce results. By so doing, I believe the player seating on the bench clutching the cup is Tom Bailey who won the trophy for best bowling average in both 1925 and 1926. For a colour photograph of the cup and further details go to picture #1115.
Please can anyone add more names?

I am grateful to Karen Moore (née Biggs) for supplying a newspaper cutting which can be viewed by clicking on Open Document above.
Ken Doggett, a keen cricketer who used to play for Handcross, sent the photograph to the newspaper in 1985 listing most of the players and officials. There was one incorrect name but otherwise almost everybody is now identified as follows.
From the left, back row: 1 Bert Bartlett (Umpire), 2 Ted Biggs, 3 Ted Jenner, 4 Sid Fenn, 5 Bob Collins (or Charlie Chown), 6 Bill Anscombe(?).
Middle row: 1 William Creasey (Scorer), 2 Harry Sadler, 3 Bill Baigent, 4 Jim Bailey, 5 Tom Bailey, 6 Bill Funnell, 7 Jim Powell.
Front row: 1 Bill Doggett, 2 Fred Ansfield.
