Bio

Inside/centre forward who moved on to Wycombe Wanderers. Starred for Old Paludians before signing for Slough Town. After his first game with the reserve side at Epsom. Dennis was promoted to the first team and signed amateur forms for Arsenal.

Turned professional with Charlton Athletic in February 1959, making a total of 262 Football League appearances for them, Portsmouth, Brentford and Aldershot and scoring 78 goals.

His training schedule includes plenty of short sprinting. Dennis, who was born in Upton Lea, just a quarter of a mile from the ground where he played each Saturday, began his soccer career at The Lea school.

He went to Slough Grammar School and played for the team there. After he left school, Dennis was a clerk at ICI for a while before doing his National Service in the R.A.F. at Compton Bassett, near Carn, Wiltshire.

He played football for his unit during the week and each weekend travels to Slough to play for the Town. Last December, Dennis played for Technical training command against the mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers. He also had a game under floodlights. At Swindon in October he played for Home Command against Wiltshire United Services League.

In his first season in Senior Amateur football, Dennis won a B&B senior cup medal. All the time Arsenal, the club Dennis has always supported – keeps a watchful eye on the tall young centre forward. From Highbury a scout brings down the tips which help to make him a centre forward for centre halves to fear.
