A superb old image showing the Fletton United FC team of 1906/7.
When Fletton United where voted into the Southern League in 1923 they added Peterborough to their name to form Peterborough & Fletton United. This was done in an attempt to gain the backing of tradesmen and people of Peterborough and to give other Southern League teams an idea of their geographical location. Peterborough & Fletton United went bankrupt in October 1932.
The picture was taken on 2nd March 1907 after Fletton had beaten Wellingborough Redwell 5 – 1 at London Road.
The line up is, Back row, A Clarke (Secretary), F Cloon, W Kisby, J Wright, W Baker, F S Hockney, J Peake, E Spink (Trainer). Front Row, G Davis, A Fixter, H Spink, R Stocks, F E Davis.
G Davis and F E Davis were brothers.
Thanks to POSH historian Mick Robinson for his help with this one.
