1953-54 Season
Epsom F.C. line up at Selhurst Park for the Surrey Senior Cup Final against Corinthian Casuals on 8th May 1954.

The Isthmian League side won 2-0 on the day in front of 6,159 spectators, less than those who had watched our two semi-finals against Dulwich Hamlet.

Back Row: Mr L.Stapley (Committee), Fred Aldred (Trainer), Brian Brumwell, Jim Crane, Alderman G.C.A. Mann (President), Geoff Porter, Grant Sherman (Chairman), Gordon Sanders, Ron Holloway, Glyn "Chick" Hinshelwood, Ernest Fletcher (Secretary), Johnny Hitchcock (unplayed reserve).

Front Row: Gordon Tillyer, Gordon Hurst, Roy Oldaker (Mascot), Pat Lynch, Bill Wiles, Mick Simmonds, Ron Ruffell.

It has been my great privilege to have met four of these people while doing my research, including the mascot who I knew well, before I found out a few years later that he had been a fan back in the fifties!

Geoff Porter in particular was of immense help in putting me in touch with other players from that era and I would like to place my thanks on record here.
