The picture must be earlier than 1920 because JM Couper, my grandfather, would have been over 50 in 1920. It must be 10 to 15 years earlier. Comment left on 29 July 2004 at 09:30 by Ross Couper
It's a wonderful photograph. I would love to check out the clubs history. My grandfather was a Christopher Francis Urquhart, seemingly came from around the Cromarty area, from the parish of Wester Logie and Urquhart. He played for a club in the area but goodness knows who or where it was. Comment left on 29 July 2004 at 19:22 by Robert Urquhart
The Worthy on the back row left with the 'Tennent's towel, looks as if he is straight from the 'ARMS'.
No Nike & Adidas designer gear in those days !! Not even the same strip, but a fine piece of social history nevertheless.

My earlier comment on the date is wrong. Are these older men playing for Cromarty because there were no younger players left after the first war? Comment left on 10 June 2009 at 05:17 by Ross Couper
I have been told that the bald, moustached man, front row- 2nd from right is my great grandfather William “Toty” Watson 1869-1941. Not sure about the year this was taken. Comment left on 25 December 2020 by Heather McAdam
