I have recently received this photograph of Walton’s football team, but with no date of when it was taken. The photo intrigued me as the players are wearing a different strip to any I’ve seen before.

Walton First XI

A non-striped strip appears in team photos between 1906 and 1949 as below:

Walton Football c1906    Walton Town FC 1936

Walton Football Club 1949

This suggests to me that the striped strip was worn earlier than 1906.

Does anyone have details of the history of Walton Town Football Club?

The late Harry Hatcher was a formidable fount of knowledge of the club, but sadly he is no longer here to help.
