This photograph was sent in by Chris Amos, who has fond memories of the Sunday morning side.

Chris tells us the photograph was taken on April 9, 1962 before the game against Barfords. He said: “It seems like yesterday when these young men were playing for Beeden Park on Sundays. Quite a few of us still keep in touch.”

The match was played in Houghton Road, with the Aveling Barford factories in the background.

Beeden Park ran out 4-3 winners thanks to goals from Dave Berridge(2), Terry Quanborough and Godfrey “Tash” Kent.

Pictured are: (back, from left) David Jackson, Alan Gledhill, David Hewerdine, “Tash” Kent, Tony Hind, Roger Latter; (front) Roy Done, Terry Quanborough, Trevor Atter (capt), Dave Berridge and Chris Amos.
