WE’VE delved deep into the Journal archives for this picture of Grantham Amateurs FC.

The photograph is 100 years old, it being taken from the 1912-13 season in which this group finished runners-up in the Newark and District League.

They were one of the top three sides in the town at the time, along with Grantham Town and Grantham Avenue - both of which played in the Central Alliance League.

The players pictured are: (back, from left): Keightley, Felstead (goalkeeper), Brewin; (second row) Wilkinson, Pinchbeck, Sprawson, Bond; (front row) Marriott, Fisher, Tilford, Bond, Tilford.

The trainers pictured were Wright and Streets while others in the group include A. Sprawson, his brother (also called Sprawson) and Jackson.
