here is some sample data from 2 tables

Player Table

PlayerID  FirstName  LastName
1234         John            Smith
1235         Jane            Smith
1236         Joe              Doe
4756         John           Adams
4757         Jane            Adams

PlayerLink Table

PlayerId  LinkNumber
1234        55
1235        55
1236        55
4756        20
4757        20

I am trying to write a query that will look up the player id for matches in link number and return the names

Using the sample data above, the query would return the following

PlayerID   LinkNumber  FirstName LastName
1234          55                    John            Smith
1235          55                    Jane            Smith
1236          55                    Joe              Doe
4756          20                    John           Adams
4757         20                     Jane            Adams

This isn't really a self join, since that implies joining a table to itself.

Unless I'm completely missing something here, this should get you what you want:

select a.playerid, a.linknumber, b.firstname, b.lastname
from playerlink a 
join player b on a.playerid = b.playerid
