A photograph, from the Evening Argus archive, of a cricket match at Glynde, dated 4 August 1937. However, this photo appears not to have been published in the Argus. To judge from the headgear of the umpire on the right of the picture and the handful of players not attired in whites this was an evening match between the village team and the officers of the Brighton Boys' Brigade during the annual Boys' Brigade camp in Glynde Park.
The Glynde players are all standing in the back-row. From the left next to the umpire stands Reg Soames then two Boys' Brigade players in caps. Next to them, at the back, is Maurice Turner, then Cecil Lusted, Harry Newham, Alf 'Prinny' Beech, Unknown, 'Young' George Holding, Fred 'Bunny' Gravett and Reg Soames. The rest are, as yet, unknown.
