Any offers. I'm fairly sure I've figured out who it is.

I would reason that his initials are LS.

I think you have probably come to the same conclusion too.
No not LS but I can see where you are coming from.
Chester gave out a clue:
Name this footballer but don't get bowled over

Just looked up his wiki entry - LS played cricket as well as football - so the clue fits.

I still don't think its LS. I think its someone more famous as a cricketer than a footballer. Here's a fuller image. Anyone recognise the ground?

Chester's next challenge. Who are these four? Three are easy, the fourth's a bit more challenging.

Exactly what I figured.
As your reward here's a picture of Chester strutting his stuff with a frying pan.

And here's another of his two cats. How did he get Sammy to balance a ping pong ball on the end of Sammy's tail?

Strangely enough, when I was sorting my desk out I came across a bunch of non BWFC autographed pictures, including Gregg, Trautmann, a few Celtic legends, and, top of the pile, Cliff Jones.

That's what I thought too. Lampard Senior and horse trainer Mick were never in doubt but Pop Robson took a bit of thinking about.

Pop Robson had a successful partnership at Newcastle with former Wanderers favourite Wyn Davies.
He was also quite keen on ping pong and met his wife to be, Maureen Hepple, on the table tennis circuit. Maureen was an English international. Here's a photo. Its not hard to see the attraction:

Here's a gathering celebrating Big Wyn's 73rd birthday. Look out for the Northern Rock and Wonga shirts. Oh dear! But does anyone recognise the venue?

Their is a likeness but these are Newcastle supporters who travelled to Bolton to celebrate Big Wyn's birthday. Might be wrong but could the venue be the Pack Horse?

That's what he was known for, the only ping pong player that anyone had heard of. But there are a couple of more recent vintage who are quite well known.

Sky Andrew is an agent who represents/represented Sol Campbell, David Ginola, Frank Bruno, Sarah-Jane Mee and quite a few others.

Matthew Syed is an Oxford-educated journalist, author and broadcaster. He's also unsuccessfully tried to get into Parliament coming third as a Labour candidate in Wokingham in 2001. He also got on the short-list for selection as a candidate in Middlesborough South in 2010. Teesside has been a ping pong hotspot in the UK for about a half century but it was local lad,Tom Blenkinsop, that got the nod and got elected.

Blenkinsop decided to stand down in 2017 because he said that he could not campaign for Labour while Jeremy Corbyn was party leader.

We mustn't forget the biggest current day exponent of ping pong of course - (from 19th December, 2010.)

Bolton skipper reveals ping pong is Coyle's secret weapon

Kevin Davies insists Sunderland defeat won't rock the Wanderers boat -

Kevin Davies has revealed how Bolton boss Owen Coyle keeps his players in line – by thrashing them all at table tennis.

Coyle joins in squad competitions and is unbeaten at ping-pong, all part of the team-building that team captain Davies says won’t be derailed by this defeat.

Bolton were desperately unlucky not to get a point at the Stadium of Light after squandering late chances in a period of dominance that Coyle said was “like the Alamo”.

England striker Davies said: “The manager is a very infectious character and wants players to have a smile on their face. He has great enthusiasm and it rubs off on other people. He demands a lot from his players but he wants them to enjoy themselves and express themselves when they play and work.

“It is difficult in football to keep 25 grown men happy. No one is happy when they miss out but he has a knack of keeping everyone happy.

“You see it in games when the subs come on and they are given a chance to make an impression.

“When we come in on a Monday morning – and it will be the same this week – you can never tell whether we have won or lost. This one is a difficult one to take. We have only really lost to the big teams but we will get back together and get ready for West Brom on Boxing Day.

“The fact we are disappointed with this defeat shows how far we have come under Owen and now we have to bounce back.”

Davies also revealed: “I do not play table tennis very often. I got my arse spanked a couple of times by him. He is a very competitive guy. He does not like losing at anything.

“It is great that he can have that sort of relationship with his players. There are no cliques. Everyone gets involved and it is the same in training with little competitions and stuff like that. It is a great place to be and go to work at.

“The way he runs things is right up there with the best I have known.”

Who could forget OC's ping pong prowess, Sluffy?
Such a shame we didn't go for Sean Dyche when Owen's game was up.

As it happens, I played a game of doubles yesterday with my son and two grandchildren.  Made me laugh when grandson 1 described me and him as the 'dream team' but we won - just.
