Quoits match at Staplefield

The Staplefield quoits club members proudly show off their quoits outside The Victory. The short fellow with the jug must be the landlord, but I am not sure if the minibus can accommodate all the remaining thirteen to their away fixture. I am wondering if, indeed, the horse-drawn carriage has brought the away team from another pub. The Large Version shows a close-up of the men all wearing some form of headwear.

I was asked by Barry Ray if I could identify any members of the quoits team.
My cousin John Anderson has already identified our grandfather Walt Chinnery. I'm sorry I cannot provide the names of any of the other members

This is a great site showing the modern history of my home village which I still love.
