It was a day of memories for Knebworth Football Club as they hosted the fifth running of the Johnny Brooks Trophy.

Forty past players gathered at Knebworth Golf Club for the event, which celebrated one of the club’s greatest sons.

Brooks was player manager between 1969 and 1975 having played for England, Reading, Tottenham, Chelsea, Brentford, Crystal Palace, Stevenage and Cambridge City.

The day also helped raise money for the charity, Ambitious about Autism.

Former player Nick Whitehead made the evening speech and Alan Denyer presented the prizes.

The winner was John Watson, with Martin Sutcliffe second and Graham Aslett third.

Mick Westley hit the longest drive while Peter Reeves, Frank Tyler, Jim Lewis and Peter Henry took the four nearest the pin awards.
