1955-56 Schools County Football

This photograph of the 1955-56 Schools County Football Team appears to have been taken at Markham’s Chase. Can you help and put names to the members of the team.

  • I am the one top left on the end David Pottinger, I can remember most of them we lived in Dicken’s Drive and left the area in 1957 ? I have 2 brothers Terry & Dennis plus a sister Valerie we all went to Markhams Chase I have to say the school was a lot better than the one I went to in Manor Park. PS by the way we are still all alive although spread about the country.

  • My Grandad has this photo, must of missed this article when it was put up! Have added all names, he wrote them on the back of the photo when he was a boy. My grandad is last in bottom row, Alan Castle.

  • The last 2 in the front row are Dave Woodley and Alan Castle the 2 missing in the photo were my brother Alan Reynolds and Jimmy Newman I think they were on “Defaulters” at the time and so missed the game. I went with the Laindon Corinthians (youth centre side) to Heliganhause Germany on the first ever visit to cement the twinning of our 2 towns with Mr Angel in goal for us!

  • It is not Micheal Roache it is Jim Roache.

    Editor: thanks I have corrected the caption.

  • I can add 3 names in the back row:- Second from left Ivan Gibson (he was in my class), then Michael Newson, (the Teacher maybe Mr Jones), then Michael Roache (his sister Kathleen was in my class).

  • Hi Gloria, after our emails today, I also think that the boy next to Anthony is Terry Venner. Andrea

  • Ok Andrea we will go for it the boy next to Tony Collins is Terry Venner.

  • We should have said the one holding the football in the middle.

    Editor: Thanks Gloria, I will add the other names provided to Patsy by Ina Pike over the weekend.

  • Hi, the last young man on the back row is my brother Fred Sewell, I would know his little quiff anywhere

    By Gloria Sewell (13/10/2011)
  • Gloria, According to the positions written on the team members Fred must have played on the left wing. I bet if you show him this photo he’ll soon name all the others. Pretty impressive shield they won that year and they all look so happy.

  • I hope so Richard, I contacted him tonight about it. I am sure the young man 2nd on left front row looking at it with the black hair, wearing a watch and CF on his shirt is Tony Collins himself.
