  • Hi Linda, I remember that there was a number of benefit games arranged in Kent for his family after his untimely death in 1975. Do you have any photos of Tony’s time at Sittingbourne and Tilbury?

  • Hi I never met tony as he passed away when my tony was 11, he was so fit, he run for miles every days, had 3 jobs, tony was there when his dad was unwell, it happened so quick, we have lots of programes from when he was at Sittingbourne, and tilbury, we will dig them out and put them on here.

  • Norton Wipps was the ‘hero of the day’ when Tilbury FC met Notts County captained by Tommy Lawton when they met in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. A special train ran to Nottingham for the match and I was lucky enough to go

  • Some missing names:

    First picture – next to Harry Gibbery is Richard (Dicky) Downey who was my uncle.

    Fourth picture – next to Brian Reed is David Drum (not Brown) then Geoff Paisley and Teddy Warren.
