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.

  • The top picture is Canvey Athletic annual dinner & dance for the 1969/70 season. Geoff Crane is centre middle with Billy O’Neill to his left with Dennis Wiffen sitting on Billie’s lap. Also included in the picture are Brian Smith (sadly deceased) and BillyEllis. I had just heard that Micky Cripps had recently passed away and was looking for information about Micky when I came across this sight. Thanks for the happy memories of Canvey Athletic who I payed for from !969 until 1983
