Stanley Anderson (1952-58)

Thanks to Stuart Anderson for sending these photos of his dad Stanley, who spent 6 years at Walthamstow Avenue between 1952-58.

Stanley made 74 first team appearances, notching a very impressive 51 goals. He later joined Finchley FC before rejoining Avenue, but never played again due to injury.

Stanley’s full Avenue record:

52/53 – 3 Apps 3 Goals
53/54 – 13 Apps 10 Goals
54/55 – 16 Apps 10 Goals
55/56 – 14 Apps 10 Goals
56/57- 12 Apps 7 Goals
57/58 – 16 Apps 11 Goals

    The team photo here is of the reserve team. I am seated on Stanley’s left ( 5th from the left). I played mostly for the reserve team along with the Grove brothers. I made only one first team appearance ( Bromley away 1952 season). As a 17 year old I was taken to the Man United game and also for the return game at Highbury.

    I worked with Stan at Jenson & Nicholson in Straford during the 1950s. He worked in the Engineers Dept and I worked in Purchasing. We spent a lot of time chatting about football. He was a Chelsea Juniors, I remember him showing me his letter from Chelsea. We played together on Sundays for the firm team, Robbialac, home games at Whalebone Lane. Stan also played cricket for the firm, I have a photo taken before a match v Milton Keynes in 1958 at Whalebone Lane.

    If Stan is still around give him my good wishes.
