Chelston club drew players from Hele village
NUTBUSH Rovers Football Club may only have existed for a few short seasons playing in the lower divisions of the South Devon League but some of its players went on to become professional footballers.
Among the faces in these 1960-61 teams are Bruce Stuckey, who went on to play for Torquay United and Sunderland, and Barry Redwood, who ran out for Exeter City.
Back in the early 1960s they were just two of the lads which Nutbush founder and coach Eric Charlton had signed up.
It probably started as a Chelston club, after Nutbush Lane, but it played at the King George V playing fields at Watcombe and drew players from Hele village.

Among was Peter Northcott who has kindly sent in these images.
He'd started playing for Hele Spurs but when he returned after a year in London, joined the young club.
Peter, now 70, thinks Nutbush Rovers petered out after four to five years. If you can fill in the history, please write in.
