I'm putting some autographs from the 70's up on e-bay but am having trouble identifying 3 of them which are written on an A4 card, any help really appreciated.
So far I have got:
- Manny Andruszewski
- Nick Holmes
- Alan Ball
- David Peach
- Peter Osgood
- Ted Mc Doagal
- Lawrie McMenemy
- Chris Nicholl
- Malcolm Waldren
- Peter Wells
- Phil Boyer
- Steve Williams
- Jim Clunie (physio)
- Steve Neville
- Mike Pickering
All done now, cheers people.
I have a similar card which i'll do when this one's finished.

Jim Clunie, I think he was a physio.
Sounds like it could be Mike Patterquake and Steve Newshues, who were both on the backroom staff in the 70s.
Maybe he stopped off here before taking the reigns at St Mirren as he went AWOL for a few years before.
I've just dug out Duncans fabulous book (In that number) & our man, Mr Clunie first pops up in the 75-76 team photo, but has disappeared by the 78-79 photo. He may have been around then, but there are no coaches, or any back-room staff in that particular photo.
"Clunie went on to manage **Saints from 1978 to 1981, replacing Alex Ferguson. He took St Mirren into Europe for the first time ever after they finished third in the league in 1981. Clunie also managed Kilmarnock from 1981 to 1985."
** as in St Mirren
Mike Pickering was centre back around that time. Steve Neville was mostly a reserve
confirmed on here:
Grat pictorial of Tony Currie's 'BENDER@ or banana shot half way down the page. Ignore the score it may bring back bad memories if you were there at the time.
Cheers all, you are amazing, you really are.
I will prob have to post a link to the other sheet as it's a bit less decipherable (is that a word?)
Can I be really lazy and ask if I should list this as players from the 76/77 season or are they 77/78?
whats the link for page on ebay may take a bid!
I've got lots of stuff to sell, so anyone finding it can add my account to their favourite sellers (link on the listings) and set their e-0mail options to update you every time a new item goes up.
I'm just about to upload the pic of the other autographs within the next 1.2 hour hopefully, but lost my ImageShack pw.
Here is the second sheet for your perusal. suggestions please?

Tony Sealy, Ivan Golac, Manny Andruszewski, Chris Nicholl, Ted McDougall, Trevor Hebberd, Malcolm Waldron, Terry Gennoe, Tony Funnell,
Maybe Graham Baker and one I have no idea about
I'll pinch that if you don't mind BS?
- Tony Sealy
- Ivan Golac
- Manny Andruszewski (Eastleigh lad)
- Chris Nicholl
- Ted McDougall
- Trevor Hebberd
- Malcolm Waldron
- Terry Gennoe
- Tony Funnell (ex Super Gills)
What's all this Kentish nonsense, H?
Kentish you say? Man of Kent, NOT Kentish if you don't mind. Sarf of the Medway, don't ya know.
Anyway, if you have nothing constructive to add, please leave.
Charming. Garden of England, mush.
I am petty confident that the one at the bottom is Terry Curran, and as Ted McDougall left in '78 just prior top Mick Channon coming back, i am leaning towards Nick Holmes for the one upside down be the inside angle.
The other one just looks like a scribble to me, but could it be Graham Baker? All suggestions greatly appreciated.

I thought your Curran was Funnell.
I now think that Graham Baker looks a bit like Alan Ball
Channon/Homes is Holmes
...at the same time as (the late) Austin Hayes, Funnell, Hebberd, Waldron, Shipley and Tony Sealy.
Steve actually scored 21 goals for Reserves in 1977-78 but never got started in the first team where he was understudy to a certain ..Alan Ball at 7 and Ted Mc Dougall no.11... and so had no chance to progress in out First Division side (Prem.) at the time, and Lawrie Mac " let him go ...."
His move to Exeter was highly beneficial and he scored lots of goals for them.
He had 3 spells there ...as well as terms with Shef. Utd and Bristol City. Career figs. were quite impressive, too
After only 6 apps. (1 goal with Saints) he went on to play almost 500 league games and netted an impressive 134 goals.
btw : MIke Pickering looked a good buy in 1977, but was only with us one season before moving back to Yorkshire. He " apparantly" had a difference of opinion with Lawrie Mac...end of story !
