Similar colours strip to Blackburn, but don’t think it’s them. Could be a well- turned out amateur team from around 1910! The players don’t have that hard look of pros from that era. Does the trophy reveal anything ? Many thanks .

I don't think it's Blackburn either as Bob Crompton isn't in it (Rovers 1896-1920 at right back and captain of their league winning sides 1911/12 & 1913/14 so he'd be right in the middle). Here's Bob



So who is it then? Good question. And good luck!

Thanks Pete,, they just don’t have that hard as nails , tough guy look of a professional team from that era. Most of them looked like Tommy Smith with moustaches! Could be a well presented amateur club or a church team? That trophy looks substantial though.

There's hardly a moustache between them.

Is it me or does Bob Crompton look like a young Winston Churchill... Laughing
