The Purley Frisbee Team - circa 1980

Anyone know anything about this ?!  It's the school Frisbee Team 

(L-R)  Top row - Mr Crossley, ?, Dave Muggeridge, ?  
Lower row - Graham Cocks, Paul "Bambino" Harrington, Nick Cash, Jamie Hanmore, Simon Harry  

Doug Cooper recalls "I only have one Frisbee related memory, which needs corroboration otherwise I just dreamt it. Was there a frisbee player that was caught smoking pot and got suspended/expelled?(Don't think he was playing frisbee at the time). Just remember the assembly announcing the revelation, and you know who's reaction."
