The phoptograph brought back memories, as I have played football and cricket with some of those featured. It also reminded me that there was a prewar football Club which has never been mentioned in the archives, that of the Victoria Sports Club which regularly contested the Laindon Recorder cup. Sadly there is only one name I can remember, Dave Edwards, who I believe was related to Wilf Simpson who played cycle polo and Johnny Simpson who played for Westley (Westleigh) cricket club. Perhaps someone can remember more of the Victoria Spports Club.

Sorry but just a correction. Its Bob Musgrove 'ove'. It must have caused a few problems as my dad was John Musgrave 'ave'. Sadly he died 2 years ago but he would have loved to see his picture on here.

Editor: Thanks

Just been looking at your photo. My mum says that that in front row is Bob Musgrove. Tom Musgrave in the back row is in fact his brother, my dad John Musgrave. My uncle Tom played for Laindon Football club not Laindon Athletic.
