Thanks for the information,Front row on left I thought he was Paul Harvey whom I worked with at the London Graving Dock. Let me know if I am wrong.

John Ryder how many years have past since we last met.Still have your wedding photo's.That could be another topic. Tilbury weddings.

To John Ryder:

Did you live in Brennan Road and is Freddy Ryder your brother ?

If I am correct,when we were kids, then you, me, Paul Carter, Roy Bridgehouse, John Jerdan David Peacock, Ronnie and Steve Atkinson and others would have a kick about every Saturday and Sunday mornings on the "triangle" opposite your house.  

Happy, happy days.

Sorry for the delay but in answer to Barry, yes that's me and we did play there, in fact that was the beginning of Tilbury Juniors. 

Charles perhaps we can meet again someday and having discussions with John Webster we now think the goalkeeper was Kenny Lawson

The goalkeeper is me ken Lawson. After getting married and living in London for many years I am now retired and living in Bedfordshire. I remember before tilbury juniors formed having friendly games with john ryder pete gathercole  roy bridgehouse jimmy Lawrence and others. Must have been about 1962. Great memories.

Have been looking for you for years you seemed to have vanished into thin air.  Love to catch up with you, I regularly stay at Ampthill in Beds. when we return to visit the UK.  Do you know where Brian Sewell is?

A lot to talk about.

hi keith  good to hear from you I missed you by about a week! when you organized a reunion back in the late 80 s. was a good friend of brian sewell but have not seen him since 1976. I was told by his brother david that graham pasley had died in a car accident many years ago.  will keep in touch on this site.it would be great to hear from the other lads.

This photo brings back quite a lot of memories. It reminds me of the rivalry between St. Chads Youth Club and Tilbury Juniors. I remember other T.J. players Bennie Bennett, Johnny Suttling, Brian Herbert? We had equally good players at S.C. Dennis Mann, Alan Scruby, Colin Macabe to mention just a few. On a sadder note I believe Roy Harvey passed away recently, can anybody confirm this?

Hiya Percy, haven't seen or heard from you for about fifty years don't know if you remember me i am good friends of Dickie Penfold and Barry Brooks, 

By andy reynolds

Yes of course I remember you and Messrs Penfold & Brooks. At one time Barry used to deliver our milk when we lived in the Railway Cottages, he was working for tha Co-op then. I also remember that super green shaft driven Sunbeam motorcycle you had and if I remember correctly you may have been guilty of riding it illegally once or twice.

I can remember Dickie Penfold (aka Treadlight) and his brothers Teddy and Archie. There is a photo of Archie in the same Railway football team as my Dad on this site.

It would be nice to catch up a bit more. Regards,

Percy Dalton
