Reader names team in the photo


The mystery of our football team photo was solved pretty quickly last week.

On the morning the photo, sent in by Terry McRae, appeared in the Herald, reader Dave Hopkins called to identify it.

It was a black and white print of Hove Police Football team and taken in the 1970s when the team played East Grinstead.

Dave, a taxi driver and retired police officer, owned the photograph and left it in the back of an atlas which he then sent for auction.

The book was bought by Mr McRae who sent it to us at Looking Back in the hope of reuniting it with its owner.

Mr Hopkins has called in to the office and collected the photograph.
