The 4-1 win over Walthamstowe Avenue was one of the big cup upsets of the time. A few years earlier 1953 they held Manchester United to a draw in the FA Cup at old Trafford 38,000 att. Previous to the 1961 Essex Senior Cup Final they had won it for three years. They won the FA Amateur Cup at Wembley in 1961, and they paraded the cup in front of there fans before the kick off of the 1961 Essex Senior cup final in front of a crowd close to 14,000. This must of upset the "DOCKERS" who then went on to beat them 4-1 after extra time. Very Happy W.A.T.F.T.T. Very Happy

TILBURY FC legend Fred Ryder has passed away, aged 81. Right midfielder Fred was part of the first "DOCKERS" team to win the Essex Senior Cup in 1961. He scored two goals in the 4-1 win over Walthamstow Avenue, which led to the team being given a procession through Tilbury. Fred who lived in Tilbury played for his home-town club between 1955 and 1962.
