1935 Athenian League 11. Can't Post or Reply Privately

In 1935 an Athenian league 11 played overseas in a tournament. They lost 3-1 to Amsterdam , I believe they also played Antwerp. Does anyone know the names of the Athenian players?
Thanks.

Can't help with names but the other team in the tournament was "Cologne".

AL beat "Antwerp" 3-0.

The tournament was held in Antwerp.

I have found the name of one player. M Fallon of Spurs, apparently Spurs nursery team were members of the Athenian league.

Mike Wilson's history of the Athenian League shows:-

21/04/1935 Antwerp 1 Athenian League 3 played in Antwerp
22/04/1935 Amsterdam 3 Athenian League 1 again played in Antwerp.

Working out who played will take a little longer but the information is in Mike's book so I will try to work out the players' names for you.

No "Fallon" listed by the way and Spurs did not have a team in the League.

I don't know what to say. Fallon may have travelled but not played. Perhaps Spurs treated one of the clubs listed as providing players as a nursery side but I find that unlikely.

In any event these thirteen(!) players are shown in Mike's book as having played in both matches.

G S Burchell (Romford)
L C Finch (Barnet)
R S Jarvis (Barking)
J Lee (Barking)
M Marchant (Cheshunt)
A Morris (Barnet)
H Neale (Barking)
H Neple (Barking)
H A Oliver (Walthamstow Avenue)
G Patterson (Romford)
G A Sergeant (Romford)
J E Scruton (Southall)
R E Wright (Leyton)

Thanks Steve, I'm researching a Barking player from that season but he is not one of the four listed. Thanks again.
