It was a pleasure and privilege to meet ex-Saltdean United player Matthew Dunkerley at Hill Park on Saturday. Matthew played for the Under 18’s back in 1970 and shared some fantastic stories from his time at the club, including a trip to Germany with the young team.

As well as providing us with some great insight into the club’s history, Matthew has also kindly shared some Cine camera footage of a match played against the German side SV Germania from Datteln. The footage was filmed by his late father at Braypool on the outskirts of Brighton and, of course like any proud parent, the focus is firmly on his own son’s prowess on the football field.

This fantastic original footage and Matthew’s recollection of his time at Saltdean can be found in our Archive page:
