March Town v. ArmyXI

March Town was established in 1885, and played at the Avenue Ground before the Second World War (1923–1939).

 

An Army XI which containing six West Ham United players opposed March Town. The lineup was most probably formed from the soldiers who were stationed at a local 'Searchlight Unit' based in Cambridshire at that time.
