Bosham, Sussex born left winger Zillwood “Zach” March started playing for local junior club Bosham F.C. in 1912, signing for Southern League Brighton & Hove Albion in 1913 having been spotted by Brighton manager Jack Robson. During The First World War he served in The Royal Sussex Regiment.

He returned to Brighton after the War’s end and scored a hat-trick in a Southern League 3-2 win over Watford in December 1919. He made his Football League debut in Brighton’s inaugural Football League fixture at Southend in August 1920, and he scored twice in the FA Cup giant killing 4-1 win over First Division Oldham Athletic in January 1921.

He played his last Brighton game of 62 in the two seasons after Brighton achieved League status in May 1922 and moved to Portsmouth that summer, in total scoring 6 goals in 85 matches for The Seagulls, but made only 4 appearances for Pompey that autumn before finishing his playing career after sustaining injury against Plymouth Argyle. He then played amateur football and captained Sussex County League club Chichester City to victory in The Sussex Senior Cup in 1926.

He died in Bognor Regis a month short of his 102nd birthday in 1994, by when he was the oldest living former professional footballer.
