This photo shows the Wigmore Athletic football team from the 1949/50 season.

The photo was brought in by Christopher Pearson, of Melrose Avenue, Worthing, and shows the wide selection of competitions the team won that season.

Christopher’s uncle, Albert Pearson, is on the far left of the front row.

The only other players Christopher could identify were Alfie Hooper, who is third left on the back row, and Harry Ansell, fourth right on the back row.

The cups in front of the team are (from left to right): Charity Cup, Sussex Junior Cup, Worthing Premier League Cup, Vernon Wentworth Cup.

If you recognise any of the other players in the team photo, or have your own photos and memories to share, please get in touch.
