I have some historical data where users have been allocated multiple ids I can't remove the duplicates as they are used elsewhere in the application and I don't have access to change that part. The duplicates are in the teammembers table

and this is my query

SELECT, t.FirstName, t.Surname,  t.teamposition as Position, c.seasonid
FROM (SELECT * , ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY id,firstname, surname, teamposition
                           ORDER BY ID DESC
                                       ) AS rn
FROM teammembers) as t LEFT JOIN PlayerSeasonLnk as c on = c.teammemberid AND c.seasonid=6
WHERE (t.ClubId = 44) AND (t.TeamPosition <> 5)and teamid = 362
order by surname

What I need is data that has only one entry for each Firstname, Surname combination.
