  • According to Dennis Taylor, this team was the runner-up in the Grays District Junior Football Teams league.  They lost the last match 3 – 2 because he let in a soft goal, so they finished second in the league.  He still has the medal awarded to the players.

    Other team members were Buddy Goyett, Ernie Merchant, Styles, Brown and Thompson.

    Although this is the Manorway School team,they didn’t play on the school field, as the grass was too recently sown to use. All their home games were played on the Tilbury Football Club field at the Orient on St Chad’s Road

  • I think the goalkeeper is Dennis Taylor, who would have been ten in 1937.  I will ask him if he can identify the other players.
