Thanks for that PT I never saw that before, I know he was in Colchester for a few years I use to carry around

Hi Sarah,even though he is named in this photo I wouldn't have picked him out . I remember the black curly hair . When he left Winton Tommy Morgan moved from left half to centre half .

Mike/Sarah,

Could he be in one of these photographs then, maybe the third one down?

hi Sarah
Here is photo of Winton Rovers around 1949 . I started following them thext year so can't recall everybody , but here goes .
BACK ROW :-Sam Pllu , ?,?, Tommy Morgan , Puggy Muir and ?
FRONT ROW :- Lawrie , Jackie Thomson , John Reid , Neilly Hawthorne and Willie Kearney .
Any corrections would be welcomed.
Mike
I came across the photo that Mike was referring to in the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald of 2 September 1949. The caption gives the name of everyone in the photo and shows that Mike's recollection was very close.
