Founded by pupils from Hove Grammar
Alpine Rovers Football Club was referred to by John Hewitt some weeks ago. This was a team which, initially, was founded by pupils of Hove County Grammar School for Boys in the early 1960’s. Pupils from other nearby schools then joined as the team expanded.
Relatively short life
Throughout its relatively short life, the team played in the Sussex Sunday League and although it started in one of the lower leagues worked its way up to a good standard. As this was over 50 years ago, detailed memories fade but others no doubt will be able to fill in more details.

Help with names?
Attached are some team photos taken during the period of 1964 to 1967. Where I can remember I’ve written the names but there are gaps which others might like to fill and indeed make corrections to my errors.
