from an article in the Luton News 10th March 1933 submitted by Brian Webb. 

The caption reads:

This old picture shows the Harpenden Rovers Football team of 1895.  Many of the players are prominent townsmen  to-day.  The following are the names: Left to right

Back row: F Wibberley, W.H.Marsh, S. Myers, W Burgoyne, G. Gardner,

Centre row: G. Read, G. Fells, H. Bentley,

Front row: G. Golds, O. Robertson, F Bandy, R. Hall and H. Warwick,

Of these, W.H. Marsh is the renowned Harpenden and Hertfordshire cricketer; and F. Bandy also made a name in the local cricket world.  H. Warwick is band master of  St Albans Silver Prize Band.  F. Wibberley is now an officer of  Harpenden Liberal Association and the Methodist Church; and H. Bentley has two sons who carry on the good work as members of Harpenden Town Football Club.  G Gardner, who carried out the duties of secretary, afterwards served in a similar capacity to Harpenden Town Football Club, which succeeded the old Rovers Club.

Go to Brian Webb's website http://thestrawplaiters.com for an article on some of the Masters of St George's school who played for Luton Town Football Club.  Of these S.F.P. Moore is in the Biographies section and Messrs Gill, Stanley and the Reverend Bennett are in the Hall of Fame.
