Alf Simmonds is Daggers guest of honour, Sat 17th April 2010

I recently featured some wonderful photos sent in by ex-Avenue ‘keeper Alf Simmonds. Well, Alf has been in touch again with more news.

Alf was guest of honour at the recent Dagenham & Redbridge home game against Burton Albion, as the Daggers gave a nod to their heritage.

Amongst other things, the programme includes a great story of how Alf met his wife at Green Pond Road:

    Hi my name is Dennis Stratton ex-guitarist with Iron Maiden , son of Dennis Stratton Senior from Canning Town who’s cousin was Les Stratton who played for Walthamstow Avenue FC in the team that played Manchester United in the cup..

    Thanks for doing the research, love these little nuggets of info, I loved going to the “Avenue” as a young Wycombe fan as we would have to change kit a rarity in the 70s.
