- On this day in 1892...
"Hod" Paul was a hard as nails half-back who got an injury of some sort every other week. He semi-retired from playing and became a ref.
The club committee wanted to concentrate on the first team so asked Luton Terriers (who had their own secretary, committee etc) to become the LTFC reserve team.
From the club minute book -
“Letter received from Mr H. Paul expressing regret at being obliged to abandon game entirely and wishing the club success”.
"Terriers agree to become Town reserves providing they 1. play their team as a whole. 2. they should have power to arrange matches on vacant dates, play them on their own ground. the club to let it to them at a reduced rate or take half gate and 3. that the club insure them against accident.
Town pointed out that if they play games as Terriers then the insurance would not cover them. It was agreed that Terriers would become the Town’s reserve team."
