Mystery photos of Brighton and Hove

Yale Football Club

By June Churchill

We have come across two photos of the Yale Football Club, which show my husband's Uncle Stan, Stanford Wilson aka Steve.

He appears to be captain of the team as he is pictured in the centre holding the ball in each photo. We also have a couple of medals in silver and enamel with which he was presented.

I can find no reference to this club anywhere. Can anyone help us? If you have any information, please leave a comment below.

The medals are the Vernon Wentworth Cup medals. I will post a photo when they have been polished.

In my role as Chairman of the Brighton Hove and District Football League I can confirm that Vale Football Club were members of our League. They played at Whitehawk Bottom. If you would like us to give further details, please access our website for contact details.

Surely it is a "Y" for Yale on the balls and the caption Ian, rather than a "V" for Vale?

Yes, it's definitely Yale.
