Tickle Sanderson: Memories of pre-war Cambridge & the club that became Cambridge United
He was born in Chesterton in 1920, and he's believed to be the oldest living Abbey United player. Herbert Sanderson has been known as Tickle since his childhood – listen to the first part of his Radio Coconuts interview, recorded in April 2016, to find out why.
The speedy outside right first played for Abbey United in 1938, and he went on to make 69 appearances, scoring 23 goals, as war affected football as much as it did every other aspect of life in Britain.
