Remembering Lost Friends

Twenty-nine years ago, on 1st March 1989 there was a tragic accident involving Feltham Football Club players.

 

Travelling home after a home match versus Newbury Town, 5 players were involved in an horrific accident at the junction The Causeway and the A30 near Feltham. 

 

Alfie Lawrence, Kenneth Bookle and Winston Wright were fatally injured whilst Peter Hamilton and Tony Hurtault were seriously injured. A charity collection raised a large amount of money and the players had a plaque made which was put up in our clubhouse. Vice President John Cronk is the custodian of this plaque at present. It reads...

 

Dedicated in memory of

 

ALFIE, KEN and WINNIE

 

This plaque is presented by the players of Feltham FC in remembrance of Alfie Lawrence, Kenneth Bookle and Winston Wright who were so tragically killed in the accident of Wednesday 1st March 1989, and also to remember that Peter Hamilton and Tony Hurtault thankfully survived the same accident.

 

To Absent Friends.
