Yes I have a photograph of Tom Cobley and his wife. He is shaking hands with Elsie Tanner (Pat Phoenix) prior to the kick off in a charity football game at Springfield Park c.1962. Also on the photo. is Jennifer Moss. In fact I went to the game.
I don't think it will copy very well? but I can have it copied by a friend who is a photographer if you like? You can e.mail me at
