Player change

By Brian Urry

Another photo of the Newhaven Football Team, different players than the other pictures.  I do hope that somebody out there will be able to name them.  I know that the chap, bottom left, came from the Peacehaven team.

Can anyone suggest the year of this team photo?  --  Editors

Second from the left, front row is my late father in law, Arthur Tardivel. He was teaching in Newhaven 1952 or so to 1956 and also played for Newhaven.

Thank you Jill, I did not think it was Nipper Lower. Your late Father in law was a good footballer.

Iif this photo is around 53/54 then it may be a bit early for the likes of the legendary Bill Ince, Mervyn Allen and Dave Wells, not to mention Nipper. I remember Brian played some of his later years at Seaford with Gerry Malley. In the same team was Freddie Cottis, a very stylish wing half who was selected for Sussex a few times and it was good to see him still around in a later Newhaven team photo as one of the coaching staff apparently. With this group at the heart of that Seaford side they achieved promotion from Div 2 and pulled off some mighty cup shocks including putting it over a strong Worthing side at Woodside Road.

Any of these names or times ring any bells with anyone?
