A font to replicate this hand lettering? Is there anything that might work?

I need to produce a new 'patch' to replace the names on the attached photo, but with some additional names. I'm trying to find a couple of fonts that might look authentic. Obviously they are not going to look like this hand lettering but any suggestions welcome.

That looks like it's done in pen and ink so I think you'll have real trouble finding something that doesn't stand out if you're keeping the original text.

Why not scan the text in high res and then image trace it and use the existing letters to make the additional names and use the existing letter forms to make any missing letters?

Alternatively, you could replace the whole thing with a similar typeface.

Hello there. One problem with the suggestion - budget! It's a favour job, which is why I am trying to find a font that will look ok. It doesn't have to match - just fit in with the rest of the poster. Thank you.

I like both of those, although I doubt the client will pay that sort of money for the fonts! It's a low budget job sadly! Thank you.
