Slaugham Angling Club

This photograph of Slaugham Angling Club was taken sometime between 1967 and 1971 in, almost certainly, the car park at the Furnace Pond.
It is not clear whether the competition has been won by the club or a individual, but the trophy has been split in two for the purpose of the photograph.
From the left, standing:- John White (not really a local but staying at Bosworth Cottages at that time), Ralph Blanchard, Tom Wilson, Unknown, Unknown, Unknown, Unknown, John Boniface.
Front row: Unknown, Trevor Gasson.
Please can anyone name the others?

I'm taking a guess at this.
I am convinced the Elvis look-a-like holding the base of the cup is Ken Tomlin, one of the best anglers I knew.
I'm not so sure, but I think the boy next to John Boniface is Alan Atkins, one of the luckiest anglers I knew!

In the back row, 4th from the right is Jeremy Hathaway, son of long-time member, Victor Hathaway.
I am Victor's daughter; sadly my brother died in 2012 in Germany where he lived. He was still a keen fisherman.
My dad died in 2014.
