Mr Phillips, who now lives in Rustington, said: “In the 1950s, I was a young lad and my father would take me up to Hillbarn Lane to watch Wigmore Athletic playing in the Sussex County League, and they were my footballing heroes.

“Recently, I found this picture of the Wigmore team, but I can’t remember all of the players’ names.”
