Have your say

alan Tosdevin would like to hear from any of his former team-mates in this picture, which he thinks was taken in the mid-1950s.

They played for Grange United, who played in the Gosport League and Alan says their home ground was at what was called a ‘remote’ site off Military Road, Gosport.

The names of some of the players he can remember are: Front row (l to r) Arthur Bull, Alan Tosdevin, ? Barry, John Barnes (the brother of Wally the Arsenal and Wales international), Tommy Lawrence and Charlie Marshall.

Back row: Jock ?, ? McNamara, ?, ?, ? Hickman, ?, ?, Ted Jones.

Arthur Bull’s father is in the back row next to Ted Jones and in front of him is ? Rix.
