A Marshalswick first year form

A class in 1961 with their teacher Mrs Wykes.  A school rule forbad the wearing of outdoor shoes inside.  This was to protect the floor surfaces in this new set of buildings.  You can see everyone is wearing plimsols.  I bet the teachers didn't though!

If this was 1960/61 then the photo might have been taken at the end of the school's second season.  The White Martin, issue 2, records the following as goal scorers:

Welling, Hunt, Woodman, Baker, Watson.

Can you confirm whether these are in the lineup shown here?
