Posh players at the Crown Ground? Can't Post or Reply Privately

Looking down Accrington's team list for the game vs Preston on Tuesday night, I note that 4 players seem to have double-barrelled surnames

Surely a record for Stanley - but has any other FL team ever featured so many?

Hmmm not sure being double-barrelled means they're posh these days, it usually means their parents aren't married and they are often mixed race I find as well.

I thought he was referring to Peterborough players.

Yes, I agree : double-barrelledness isn't so much of a guide to upper-class origins these days...but it did strike me as being worthy of note, and hoped that some statto would tell me how the Royal Engineers won the cup back then with a hatful of double-barrelled half backs.....

The two double barrelled players in their winning team were actually both forwards - Henry Renny-Tailyour and Cecil Wingfield-Stratford. Incidentally Renny-Tailyour later married the sister of Wingfield-Stratford, but sadly I don't think they decided to go for down the quadruple barrelled route.
