I only know John Burgess but all the other faces look familiar!

The date on the ball is 57/58 - was this when the photo was taken?

I am sorry I gave you some false information on the goalkeeper's christian name in the Eastside Rovers football team photograph.  He was known by must people as Horace but that was his nickname, his christian name was Peter.

Is this the Sonny Folwel that married a lady called Peggy and in the early 50s lived in a Nissan hut at Fairholme Road?. If so, I lived in the hut opposite them and remember them well. At that time, Sonny had an old motorbike and would take me on the pillion and we would ride all the chalky roads over the Downs and to Poverty Bottom orchard etc. I was about 9years old at that time. Living on "The Mount", then were fun days with complete freedom.
