Further Work Needed

The identified players played together in 1934 and 1936. Reviewing the match by match possibilities, there are no matches in the 1934 season where the identified players played together in the same match. This leaves 1936 where these players played together on one occasion: Round 4 - Venue: Arden St. The white shorts indicate an away match, which fits this theory, but the grandstand is unrecognised.

Round: 4 Venue: Arden St Date: Sat, 23-May-1936 2:45 PM Attendance: 14000
North Melbourne|2.3.15 4.6.30 5.15.45 7.18.60
South Melbourne 3.7.25 10.13.73 12.16.88 18.21.129

Missing players should be: Reg Humphries, Laurie Leask, Roy Moore, Jim Reid, Lindsay Richards
