Benfleet Methodists Football Team 1957-58
Southend District Minor League 3rd Division Winners
The manager and coach of this team was Alf Cushings who was the Methodist Church Youth Club leader. All of the players were under 18 years of age. They played on a pitch close to where the bowls club is now before the recreation ground was extended and the changing rooms were at the back of what is now Lloyds Chemist.

We can not identify all of the players in the photograph; the man behind Dave Cowan with curly hair is John Palmbey the top scorer for the year, with 52 goals. The player far right, behind the man presenting the cup is Trevor Hudson. The player left of the man presenting the cup is Trevor Evans. Does anyone know the names of the other players in this photo and that of the man presenting the cup?
