What ever happened to…Anthony Betterton

Little is known about the career of Anthony Betterton, he doesn’t even have an entry on Wikipedia. The little data available suggest he spent some time at Swindon Town, before signing for Highworth Town, Swindon Supermarine and Shrivenham before moving back to Highworth Town at some point (Only known thanks to an online Wooton Bassett Town FC programme from 2012).

However, in 2006 he made a report in the Swindon Advisor on a non-league match between North Leigh and Shrivenham where he was written to be involved in a “farcical mix-up” with a defender costing his side a goal to former Nottingham Forest player Chris Allen.
