Top row/ 6th from left : Anne Bourne.
Middle row/1st from left :Mick Collington. 5th Colin Holden. 6th John Green. 7th Mick Cornwell. 8th Fred Batholemew. 9th Billy Wells. 11th Harold Evans. I think, it now all seems too brief and so long ago, I also did not realise Millie Marchant was so young!, while at school I would have guessed her to be at least eighty. Bruce Saunders was our P E and games teacher, a great guy, he also taught our daughter Kirstin many years later, if you read this Bruce, many thanks you did a great job and did it so well.

Bruce Saunders is my grandad and I have just showed him this webpage. He was very surprised to find himself on the internet, but enjoyed the nice comments and reminiscing over the photos.

I think the girl in the second photo, third from the right in the back row is my cousin Pat Sands (now Mann).

In the second picture I am almost certain the girl standing on the left in white is Pauline Fairhead (Smart)

Hi Karen I am your grandfathers cousin. My mother Daisy & Bruce's mother Elsie were sisters from over the island. I haven't been able to see any photos of Newhaven Football Team with Bruce in them. Do you have any ? It would be nice to see them on the website. I believe your gran Doreen passed some memorabilia to your dad Michael.
