Lynn Rovers

Does anyone have any information on Lynn Rovers FC? All I know is that, in 1896, they were playing in a local league and that their opponents included Lynn North End.

Glad to be of help Ken, I've just noticed that one of the forwards was a J Jary. I'm wondering if this was one of my grand dads family, Jim Jary? T

T, I'm afraid I can't help you with Jim Jary, but I do recognize Anderson, Horsley, Withers, Dexter & Pearman as being teammates of Harry Taylor (of "paper factory" fame). It's likely, therefore, that your relative (if, indeed, it's him) and mine were acquainted. Incidentally, I see that there was a Taylor who acted as linesman at the match on 10/10/1886, so there's another line of enquiry to follow. That's the trouble with this family / local history lark: always something new to research.

By the way, I didn't realize that the EDP covered Lynn football in such depth; I assumed that was left to the Lynn Advertiser and the Lynn News. Since the EDP for much of the period 1870-1911 is covered by the BNA, that gives me another potential source of info.[/b]

Hi Ken, don't know if you have seen this, it is a newspaper cutting from Nov 1896, don't know which paper though. There is also a report in the South Wales Daily news, of the 17th November 1896, telling how Harry collided with a chap called Hornigold, of the opposing team and died in the night from his injuries. So sad he was only 20. Hope this is not being insensitive. T

This is the Welsh one Ken, but there were reports in Newspapers all over the country, I found another one in one of the York newspapers. T
