90 years on from this Trinity team


scan0029Thanks to local historian David Gantzel for the loan of his excellent book “Hazlemere” which he wrote and published back in 1988.

Whilst not exactly ‘Holy Trinity’ and not looking like ‘Juniors’ . there was a Hazlemere Trinity Football Club here back in 1925.

David’s book tells me:

“Football also progressed from its small church team. in 1925 Hazlemere Trinity (as it was then known) joined the High Wycombe Combination and in October, Mr Howard Stebbings of the Football Chronicle came to Hazlemere to give talks (with puppets) on football, and how to play it.

One month later on November 28 1925, Hazlemere Trinity were drawn away to Wycombe Wanderers reserves in the Berks and Bucks Cup, the match to be played at Loakes Park. This was undoubtedly Hazlemere’s biggest match, and on that proud day, captain H Janes led his team out. In the event, Hazlemere were outclassed and went down 11-1. Described as gallant losers, it was an experience the village team was long to remember”
