Banstead Athletic footballer... but who is he?.

Unknown Banstead Athletic footballer. Can you identify him?
One suggestion received via Wendy Henningsson is that this is a photo of Len Walker.

Len Walker was the name that sprang to my mind too.

Hello, I am the programme editor/webmaster/press reporter for Banstead Athletic FC. The above picture is definately Len Walker. I met him when his relations got in touch with the club a couple of years ago and wanted to visit us at the Merland Rise ground. It was a memorable day. I presented him with our football club shirt with his name and playing number on the back which he was honoured to accept. I was surprised when he put it on and went out onto the pitch and starting kicking a football around. As by then he was in his eighties. I also managed before they passed away to get Jon Jackson (our goalkeeper) and Rob Warner from the first Banstead team (Banstead Juniors) to visit us. The Surrey Mirror did a piece on Jon when he died as he was a huge Crystal Palace supporter along with his grandson. They also received shirts from me. I must say I was humbled to have been in their presence and to be part of a piece of our football club history. I have also met Norman Dearlove who was a part of the team in the 1958-1960 seasons. I wrote an article on him for our football programme about his career in football after speaking with him. As a team we are currently in the Combined Counties First Division. Trying to find our feet again. We will hopefully rise again in the seasons to come.
