“I am still looking for Posh player Robbie Cooke running in the middle (third from left).

“Jackie Gallagher on the end right is up for it again (he appeared in my first book in a recreation from the same game).

“I have put out appeals on Twitter to Neville to see if he would be willing to return for a rematch! It’s a big ask as he lives in Wales.”
