King John football team 61/62

King John football team 61/62
Roger Taylor collection

I believe this is the team from 61/62.

Back row: Roger Taylor – Pete Shaw – Barry Deamer – Doug Wilson

Middle row: Terry Campion – ?? – Dick Collie – Laurence Howard

Kneeling:  Dave Earey – Bruce Tyrie – Ray Norton

A lot of us also appear in the rugby photo. Mr Lawton managed us and commented at one time that Norton and Taylor were his goal machines.

I played golf against Mr Lawton at Boyce Hill a few years ago in a Seniors match Boyce v his club and after recognising him and reminding him of all the football history, we had a round filled with ‘remember that school match’ etc. but despite that it didn’t stop him beating me. I let him win really!!

I don’t know who is in the background of the photo.

  • I was speaking with my friend Ken Lammas, to remind me that he played for this side because he was a brilliant Inside Right and a prolific goal scorer. He said he played alongside Bruce Tyrie and is surprised that he isn’t mentioned. Ultimately he played for Thundersley and Hadleigh in the Southend and District League in their first team. Perhaps Mr D could be consulted. PS Ken said the football pitch was down in the bottom of the school field until the field opposite the school started to be used for Rugby!!
