Ben Marden

Outside left Ben Marden joined the Club from Chelmsford City in 1950, but failed to establish himself in the first team over the course of his five-year spell.

The Londoner made his debut against Manchester United just over a month after joining Arsenal and went on to make 11 appearances in his first season with Tom Whittaker’s side.

Despite a reasonable goals return, Marden could not force his way into Whittaker’s plans on a more regular basis and left the Club to join Watford in 1955.
