Handcross boys cricket team

This is the Handcross boys cricket team, presumably based at Handcross school. The date has been estimated.
The only person I can put a name to in this photograph is the young lad seated in the front row second in from the right. He is my uncle Frank Brown (b. 1914), wearing the striped jacket and cap.
Please can anyone add more names?

Please does anyone know if Alfred Ansfield is in this picture?
Added by Michael Chatten (Ansfield) on 21 March 2019
Michael, I am sure you know already that Alfred was born to Edward A. Ansfield and Eliza Boniface who married in 1892.
By the time of the last-issued Census Return of 1911 the family lived at 5, Warren Cottages, Handcross.
Click on Open Document to view a copy of the census return. Alfred was not born until early in the following year, 1912, and therefore does not appear.
It seems highly likely that Alfred appears in the above photograph, and I hope that someone will be able to name some of the young Handcross cricketers.
A search on the website failed to provide any other pictures of Alfred where he is named.
Alfred died at the age of 22 in early 1935, and the sad circumstances of his early death can be found on picture #770.
