Can you identify any of these Methodist Footballers from Moonee Ponds?

This image shows the Moonee Ponds Methodist Football Club of 1914.

Two players, Sid Latimer and Cecil Seccombe, have been identified, but Lenore Frost is trying to identify the rest of the players, particularly any who may have enlisted in the First World War, for her database of local volunteers, The Empire Called and I Answered.

The team were most likely drawn from the congregation of the Moonee Ponds Methodist Church, (formerly the Wesleyan Church) of Gladstone Street, pictured below.
