No indeed, twelve players for a start. I think I know what the problems are. Anderson & Alan aren't two players. The man in question is Alan Anderson, later of Hearts fame. I think (though can't be certain) that the A Anderson in the forward line is actually Alf Ackerman. Millwall's only other Anderson was Des Anderson, signed from Hibs but that wasn't until the summer. The Brady at full-back is Pat Brady and the centre-half Ray Brady.

Thanks for the responses received so far.

David, I agree with your observations on the Millwall team line-up.

According to Millwall a complete record the Andersons were Alec and Alan. Maybe someone who never played a league or cupgame for Millwall?

Curious. No player of that name registered with Millwall at that time. Only possible one is Sandy Anderson of Southend but he was a full back. Maybe a trialist?
