    On this day in 1892...

    The first team played the reserves. The reserve team contains some of the class of 1885 - "little kickers" - who were took to the streets and parks inspired by the formation of LTFC and emulating their heroes. They had now grown up would provide great service in the years to follow - Lawson, Pakes, Groom, Cheshire, Watkins, Dimmock and Allen.

    From the Luton Reporter of 17th September 1892. Game played on 10th September 1892.
    “Luton Town v Reserves
    This match formed the opening fixture of the Town Club’s list, and it was decided on the Athletic Ground on Saturday in presence of a goodly number of onlookers. The match was rendered more interesting from the opportunity which it afforded of enabling enthusiasts to judge the changes which have recently been made in the constitution of the first eleven. As has been previously intimated the principal change was the substitution of J.W. Julian, of the Royal Arsenal, for H. Paul, at centre half-back. He is a very capable player, and the critics were fully satisfied on Saturday with his performance. J. Simpkins was given a trial in the centre, but he was scarcely so successful as could have been wished, his efforts being devoid of the dash and brilliancy which are indispensable to a good centre forward. The backs were in fine form and the other members of the eleven played fairly well, but on the whole their style was distinctly disappointing. They were at no period of the game in that dashing form which was frequently exhibited last year and it was generally agreed that if they want to win many of the better class matches which they have in store they will require to smarten up considerably. The Reserves, on the contrary, exhibited surprisingly good style, and when the end came they had achieved a well-deserved victory by three goals to one. Simpkins credited the Town Club with their solitary point, while the goals for the winners were notched by Dimmock, Allen and Warren. Teams:- Luton Town: Goal, J. Burley; backs A. Sanders and J. Hoy; half-backs, J.W. Julian, A.H. Taylor (captain) and J. Wright; forwards, J. Simpkins (centre), H.W. Oclee, R. Brown (right), H. Whitby and F.K. Whitby (left). Reserves: Goal, W. Lawson; backs, W. Day, W. Cheshire and C. Read; half-backs, W. Boston, J. Watkins and T. Pakes; forwards, F. Allen (centre), J. Read, A. Warren (right), J. Dimmock and G. Groom (left). Referee Mr I. Smith; umpires, Messrs Shane and Wilkins.)”
    The reserves appear to have played with 12 men.

      'The Reserves appear to have played with 12 men'!!!!! Superb. I hope Simpkins found his dash & brilliancy sooner rather than later. Top stuff.
