To get an array full of the file names you want:

$interestingFiles = array();
$dir = opendir( "/path/to/directory" ) or die( "Could not open dir" );
while( $dirEntry = readdir( $dir ) ){
  if( ereg( "full", $dirEntry) ){
   array_push( $interestingFiles, $dirEntry );

I'll leave it up to you to sort $interestingFiles by the date in the
element values, since I don't recognize a date in your file-naming
