I hope that others will find their way to the bottom of the index, to do justice to your efforts.

From recent ISOR:
10. T W Rand.

From Upton, ones I had never heard of:
!2 V Rae
21 W Robinson.
29 W T Strainge
41 A E Westwood?
43 A Wilkinson  (clever!)
48 G Sunderland

Am I right in deciding that George Singleton is the required answer at 32, rather than 30?

A pretty challenging selection!

I am only vaguely confident of a couple:-

33. R. Spittle
36. R. Tinkler

I would have offered D. Vickers for 08, but he wasn't around as early as 1970 I suspect.

More speculatively, perhaps:

34. If "remove him" refers to Oriel College, then the answer would be Peter Rhodes.
39. Might be the dubious timekeeper who gave Fryatt's goal as 4 seconds - Bob Simons.

More confidently:
40. B S Setchell
