011 – Woolwich Arsenal 26 France 1

Yup – you read the score right. A visiting team made up of players from a few different French clubs got a right tonking. Interestingly their goal was scored by the Arsenal reserve Hodges, who was playing for the French as they were a man short. The first two images are scans of postcards released at the time of cartoons from local paper the Kentish Independant which were reprinted a while back by Islington Libraries. The third is from a series of football postcards issued at the time.
