Hangleton FC was created by lads from the Nevill School in 1962. This is the first ever photograph taken of the team who successfully won the Sussex Sunday League 3rd division in their first season. They subsequently continued with former Nevill School pupils to reach the SSL Premier division.
Contact lost over time
Missing from the photo are Eric Dore,Club Secretary, who took the photograph, plus two key players Andy Lawson and Tony Burridge(Budge). Unfortunately contact with all the players has been lost over time, but they were great days from a time. We were all playing collectively in Hangleton Park from the late 1950s, the park was a haven of good footballers.
