Canvey District Football Club

John Buckmaster's Scans

By David Bullock

John Buckmaster has kindly sent in these Football scans and hopfully we can add some details of their background. On one we can see a Coach with a "Canvey District Football Club" sign in the front window. John believes they are dated around the 1960's.

Can anyone please add any information including the years, the people, the teams etc. Please leave a comment at the bottom of the page or email us at the website.

Hi, 3rd picture, boys team. No 9 is Peter Bouchereau younger brother of Dave (Bos) Bouchereau.No 10 is Clive Brockes. As I remember Dave Cunningham went onto West Ham and played for the A side and then Ilford. Although a Canvey side 5 of that team came from Benfleet.Although I never played agains't this side as I was playing in the Southed District league then, this was probably the best junior side in the area at the time.

I played for the Canvey District Boys Club around 1955-1958 when Sonny Heskith was managing the team. Fond memories of travelling to White Hart Lane, 12 guys in a Taxi!! Sonny had links with Spurs. Played with such guys as Sid Wolfe, Clive Brocks, Arthur Shave etc.
