With the football season now under way, it seemed the ideal time to show this picture of our local footballers from more than a century ago.

The photograph was taken in 1902 and shows members of the Market Rasen Young Men’s Institute Football Club.

They are named as: back row, from left, C E Limon, Hector King, Bob Barr, Vincent Booth, Walter Casterton and Bert Campsell; middle row - Sid Wolf, F Chesman; ? Sparrow and Dick Ranyard; front row - Harry Warren; George Wolf; Nickie Dixon; Albert Creasey and ? Redhead. Can anyone tell us any more about the club?
