Barry Ray Year: 1956 Villages: HandcrossHandcross British Legion cricket cup match
I have come across two pictures which seem to have both been taken at the same event. They are team photographs of a cricket match played between Handcross British Legion and an unknown opponent in the Sussex knockout cup competition.
From the left, the Handcross team is:-
Back row: Jack Stewart, Les Pateman, Peter Marchant, Alan Hilder, Sid Biggs, Rhys Thomas, John Robins, Ron Pateman (scorer).
Front row: Ian Robertson, Alan Pattenden, Roger Ray, Joe Ray.
Rex Ray helped out with the names, making the following comment. Peter Marchant was an excellent all-round cricketer, playing regularly for Handcross village. He also played in the village football team.
The Large Version shows a close up. The quality is not good as the original photograph was tiny.
Select Open Document for a picture of their opponents. Perhaps someone will be able to name the team.
