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.

We start off this week with a line-up from Harpenden Town Football Club’s Under-18 side of 1964. They were the winners of the Chiltern Youth League Cup, defeating Cambridge United 5-4 after extra time at Vauxhall Motors FC.

The team line-up is: (back row) DF Garrett (chairman), J Hill, R Clarke, R Odell, M Austin, D Otterwell, P Fields, R Green, LR Seagrove (manager); (front row) I Fox, M Keen, D Pritchard, D Evans, R Garrett, M West (captain).

If you were pictured in this squad 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
