Most towns will have had a "Thursday" team - the side consisted of local tradesmen/shop owners who played on a Thursday because that was half day closing.

First mention of "Maidenhead Thursday FC" was around 1900 and here's a photo of them in 1935.



There was often a Thursday cricket team as well.
