Witham Rovers football team. Formed from old Bramston School team because wanted to stay together and the ‘Witham Minors’ wouldn’t have them. Rovers won the Kelvedon and district Minor League in 1952 (hence the cups) so then Witham Minors wanted them. Tony Pennock himself joined Maldon Town. Back row, left to right, Rowland Hazel (‘trainer’, ‘sponge man’), Bob Rushen, George French, Ken Bibby (goalie), Kenneth Frost, Roy Button, Paul Brooke (should have been Johnny Rushen here but absent from photo shoot), Bert Upson (trainer manager). Front row, Tony Pennock, Ray Curtis, Norman Groves, Cliff Crane, Charlie Hazelwood.
