From the Parish Magazine 1908
At a meeting of the Football Club held in the Reading Room on Wednesday, July 27th, Mr Cecil White was elected Captain of the team, and Mr Frederick Reynolds, Vice-Captain. The Committee consists, besides the two named, of our indefatigable Secretary – Mr Welch, Mr Hale, Mr W. Flitney and Mr Wilmhurst. This year Lemsford has joined the Mid-Herts League (Division II) and have also entered for the Herts Junior Cup. The season opened on September 10th at Boreham Wood, when Lemsford lost to that Club by two goals to none after a really good game. On the two following Saturdays, Lemsford lost to Radlett and effected a draw with London Colney. Mr Oliver Reynolds deserves our congratulations. For four successive seasons he has scored the final goal for Lemsford.'
Cecil Bertram White, born 15 July 1891: Enlisted Nov 1915. Killed in action Ypres August 1916.
