Worthing Old Grammarians Cricket Club - 1935
Picture taken at Petworth Park by a local reporter (also those below).
Names of players not quite discovered yet!.
Apart from Lionel Watson, the club stalwart and keeper, who is seen here with pads on, back row, 2nd right.
He was to play for the club for 25 more years after this picture was taken!
The Manor Ground, Lancing - 1958
This 'Postcard' had been 'coloured' at the time of production, as the roof of the Pavilion was actually grey tiles.
But the touch-up does add a little character - and just look at that large playing 'square'.


Lancing Manor Ground - 1960.
Taken a couple of summers after Worthing Old Grammarians had moved from their Forest Road ground in Worthing to the Manor.

Lancing Manor in the mid 1960's
Venue looks a great place to play cricket.
So much so that Sussex CCC cricketers quite often had the odd benefit match there - helped of course that Les Lenham had strong links with both 'clubs'
