Team strip reminiscent of the North American Soccer League

Have your say

AMERICAN Can’s football team had a distinctly American-style strip which must have really caught the eye on the field.

The strip has a distinctly retro look akin to teams such as the New York Cosmos and Tampa Bay Rowdies which were playing at the time in the North American Soccer League.

The photo was sent in by David Bunn who believes it was taken around 1980.

Mr Bunn, an ex-employee of American Can has provided the names of many of those pictured.

Back row: Billy Cope, Steve Nesbit, Paul Meek, Mick Derby, unknown, Sam Langston .

Front row: unknown, Stewart Clark, Kevin Hardy, Mo Collyer, unknown.
