Whether it’s cricket on the Common, rugby in the fields, golf on the fairways, football, bowling, tennis or any of the other activities which take place in Harpenden, we want to celebrate the rich history of sport in the town.

We will be publishing a variety of old photos and newspaper clippings featuring different teams and sports from across the decades, and need your help to fill in the blanks if we can’t identify the date or the names of all the players.

This week we present the latest contribution from Harpenden Bowling Club, based on Spenser Road in the town.

Club webmaster Tony Redford has graciously lent us a plethora of pics featuring members of the club in the 100-plus years since it was founded in 1908, and this week we have a photo from a game played against Luton Hoo in 1947.

If you can identify any of the players we’d love to hear from you, and if you have any old photos of Harpenden sports teams from any point over the last 100 years, please email us at enjoyharpendenmore@archant.co.uk
