Cypal International Ltd. - Cypal Football Series

CYP-1 Cypal Football Series
Cypal International Ltd.
22 ?

I've had an e-mail from Keith Hulls...
To my knowledge you have not previously featured any cards from the Cypal Football Series. According to the Trade Index there are only 2 known (CYP-1), and the 2 that occasionally seem to turn up are both Liverpool cards - Tommy Smith and Ian Callaghan. However, I also have 2 other Liverpool cards, plus 10 Manchester United from the series, as follows:

1.  Ray Clemence (Liverpool)

2.  Tommy Smith (Liverpool)
4.  Joey Jones (Liverpool)
7.  Ian Callaghan (Liverpool)
12.  Alex Stepney (Manchester United)
13.  Chris Nicholl (Manchester United)
14.  Martin Buchan (Manchester United)
15.  Brian Greenhoff (Manchester United)
16.  Alex Forsyth (Manchester United)
17.  Lou Macari (Manchester United)
18.  Sammy McIlroy (Manchester United)
19.  Jimmy Greenhoff (Manchester United)
20.  Gordon Hill (Manchester United)   -   added 26-07-2020  -  thank to Nikji99
21.  Stuart Pearson (Manchester United)
22.  Steve Coppell (Manchester United)

There is no indication how many are in the set, but the numbering sequence suggests that nos 1-11 are a complete Liverpool line-up, and nos 12-22 are a complete Manchester United line-up. If this information is of interest to you, and worth adding to your blog, I would be keen to know if any other collectors may be able to fill in the missing gaps.
