Most of these lads went on to play football after leaving school.
Terry Lane formed the Reckitt & Coleman team which was later to become
Rye Athletic. Laurence Igglesden played for Athletic before leaving
school and went on to play for Rye United.

Ian Newstead played for Rye United in the first eleven and Keith Fitzhugh
played for Udimore. Trevor Ashby, with brother Chris, were members
of the famous Iden Football Club when it was first formed. Trevor
emigrated to Canada.

What are they all doing now?
