Cornish Match Co. / Jay Dees Newsagents - Footballers (1st series)

Footballers (1st series)
Cornish Match Co./Jay Dees Newsagents

A first series of matchbox labels - though I've never seen them as actual matchboxes.
UPDATE (12-01-2021 14:37):  Tony Park has been looking at the Cornish Match Company cards:
The first series I also think is 1978/79. Both Ray Wilkins (Chelsea) and Trevor Francis (Birmingham City) are shown in old team colours. By 1981, Francis had been at Forest for two seasons  and Wilkins at United for the same period.

1.  Ray Wilkins (Chelsea)
2.  Mick Lyons (Everton)
3.  Liam Brady (Arsenal)
4.  Brian Little (Aston Villa)
5.  John Richards (Wolverhampton Wanderers)
6.  Dave Langan (Derby County)
7.  Trevor Francis (Birmingham City)
8.  Tony Woodcock (Nottingham Forest)
9.  Clive Whitehead (Bristol City)
10.  Ray Hankin (Leeds United)
11.  Kevin Reeves (Norwich City)
12.  Jimmy Case (Liverpool)
13.  Jim Blyth (Coventry City)
14.  Steve Coppel (sic) (Manchester United)
15.  Ossie Ardiles (Tottenham Hotspur)
16.  Brian Talbot (Ipswich Town)
17.  Peter Barnes (Manchester City)
18.  Cyrille Regis (West Bromwich Albion)
