Members of Kingstone United football team from 1974.

A photographer is searching for members of Kingstone United football team from 1974 after restoring an old photograph.


Christopher Lewis, 30, was given the photograph, which is dated February 1974 and is titled 'Kingstone United, Chronicle Barnsley 74' by one of the players in the image, Mervyn Wigfield, who is now a groundskeeper at Wentworth Castle.


Chris said: "The photo is in great condition, it is just a little weathered with age and needs a bit of a clean up.


"After seeing the 1970s' sideburns, moustaches and hairstyles, I thought it might be interesting to see what the team looks like now, 40 years on."


His aim is to get the original team back together for another group photo. All the players featured are named on the back of the picture, along with additional notes about the schoolboy teams they played for.


The top row in the photo, from left to right, are named as: Dom Wooley (Man City), Jeff Goodlad, Dennis Crowcroft, Sam Wright, Eric Lamb (MBA), Peter Wood (Bradford).


The bottom row is: Mervyn Wigfield (Barnsley), Alan Luckman (Sheffield Wednesday), Kevin Holmes, Keith Wyke, Keith Goodall (Barnsley) and Roy Burgess.


If you know anyone from the photograph or are in it, get in touch with Chris on 07709144032.
