INVITATION SENIOR CUP WINNERS 1965/66 Founded by W.R. Davies, at a meeting in his father’s house at 11 Queensdown Road, Clapton E5, August of 1877, Downs FC started playing on Hackney Downs. Three years later in 1880, and with a name change to Clapton Football Club, the Tons moved the short distance to North Mill Field, Leyton. Later that year the Tons were offered their first private enclosure at Elm Farm with a rental of £10 per year. They moved once more before settling at the Dog, to Pilgrims Farm, Walthamstow. It was the founding of the London FA that introduced Clapton FC to the Spotted Dog, The Tons played an LFA Cup match against City Albion who had a pitch in the field just north of the Dog. The tenants of the Dog were St Bartholemews Hospital who were about to vacate, so Clapton obtained a lease from the owner, Mrs Vause. It was a bold step, the rent was £35 a year, whilst the club’s annual income amounted to £40. th

The opening game at the Dog took place on the 29 September 1888 and the Clapton team beat a team from Old Carthusians by a goal to nil. The scorer was J.S. Sellars. The ground was a roped enclosure and the players changed in a barn in Upton Lane. Many games drew crowds of 4,000 or more, and several notable Ton’s players were recruited from those watching when numbers were short. In 1982 a Southern League game was the first league match ever to be played at the Dog. Before this, only friendly and cup matches had taken place. The brewers, Watneys took over the freehold of the ground and during the second world war the Dog became an anti-aircraft station. During these five years, Clapton played at Newbury Park, the home of Ilford FC. A crowd of 12,000 watched Clapton play Spurs in a cup tie in 1898 which resulted in a 1-1 draw. In more ‘recent’ times, a crowd of 2,000 witnessed an FA Amateur Cup match against Barnet in 1964. In 1992, the Clapton Trust managed to negotiate and finally secure, in 1995, a 99 year lease on the ground. This achievement should have secured the club’s future at the Old Spotted Dog, however, with Vince McBean ay the help, recent events and mismanagement have placed this security in jeopardy and these issues will need to be addressed to secure the club’s future once more.

JOIN THE FRIENDS OF CLAPTON FC Whilst the primary objectives of the Friends of Clapton FC was to help those who run, administer and play for the Tons, the entity that claims to be Clapton FC has neither acknowledged or accepted that the Friends group have a role to play in the future of the club and would prefer to continue in it’s present shambolic state. In the meantime, the Friends of Clapton remain vigilant as to any perceived problems, and of issues, such as tenure on the ground, that are not addressed by the ‘club’. For example, earlier this year, the lease on the ground was only weeks away from forfeiture, due to mal administration by the self proclaimed 'club owner’. (Not filing accounts) The continuance and well-being of the club, the security of tenure at the Old Spotted Dog Ground and promotion of Clapton FC's activities in an open and forthright manner would re-establish the club in the world of football as well as the local community. However, this is not currently on the ‘club’s agenda’. We believe that Clapton Football Club is deserving of support and whose survival is important, not only to the local area, but also to the sport of association football, the development of which, owes much to the Clapton players, officials and supporters of yesteryear.

CLAPTON v london bari Essex Senior League th Tuesday 25 March 2014

The 25th March is the anniversary of the death of one of the most significant players ever to pull on the red and white shirt of the Clapton Football Club. Walter Daniel John Tull played for the marvellous Clapton team of 1909 that won the FA Amateur Cup. His professional career with Tottenham and Northampton Town is well chronicled, as is his fight steadfastness against blatant racism and intimidation. Despite the abhorrent tirade of ignorance and provocation, Tull did not shirk away or fold. He played on as a professional, letting his football, his values and his upright demeanour do the talking. Following a match betwtween Hastings United and Tottenham Hotspur in 1909, the local newspaper reported “Tull plays football with brains” which is indicative of his reasoning and ability to asses difficult situations on the field of play. From the football field, Walter Tull went on to fight on the battlefields of the First World War and lost his life whilst leading his men in the ‘spring offensive’ of 1918. We have reproduced an article about Walter Tull in this iProg and make no apologies for doing so. Tull’s strength of character, bravery and non capitulation to the racists is something that everyone can aspire to, even 96 years after his death. On the field, the lads have returned to winning ways following three disapointing defeats. In amongst those matches were some lively talking points, including the goal by Sawbridgworth that actually missed the target, rattling the railings behind the net and Tons’ keeper Nick Brown’s dismissal for hands outside the area at Eton Manor. Tough decisions to accept at the time, but this is part of the fabric of our wonderful game. Such decisions are down to three guys who turn up every match and, like the players, give of their best. Refs, Linos, we salute you, as there is no game without you. This evening we welcome Messrs Gainsford, Taher and Zakri and hope they enjoy the match too. The game last Saturday at the Terence McMillan Stadium resulted in an excellent 2-1 victory over neighbours, London Apsa. Ike Nzumba and Tom Jeffes (he’s got no hair, he’ll score from there) were the scorers. Again the team were superbly supported by the travelling Tons. Well done to everyone. Tonight sees the second leg of the ‘Newham Derby week’, as London Bari are our visitors. It has been very good to see Bari pick up some points since the turn of the year and hopefully they might even ‘do a Clapton’ and nip above Greenhouse London to finish off the bottom of the table by the last game of the season. However, whilst we are sure that they will forgive us for not wishing them success this evening against the Tons, but our very best wishes to go them for the rest of the season. Next Saturday, the Clapton Ultras and the Newham Food Bank have organised an event in which you are asked to bring along some spare food which can be used to help families in the borough. More information is inside the iProg and, of course, your help and contributions are very much appreciated. Clapton scarves and badges are for sale as normal in the Scaffold stand. If you have one already, why not buy your Mum one for Mother’s Day. If you haven’t yet bought one, get with it tight-wad ! Finally, you may have seen recent articles written about the club and the Ultras in a couple of publications. Four Four Two is possibly the most popular soccer mag for grown ups and, in their March edition carried a piece on the Tons. Equally, we had a really excellent piece, from a local perspective, in the dalstonist newspaper. All this publicity is good for Clapton FC and the continuance of such will ensure that we do not slip back under the radar again. Enjoy the match !


OUR VISITORS - LONDON BARI FC London Bari were formed in 1995 by the now Redbridge FC chairman, Imran Merchant. They played in the South Essex Sunday League for three years but took a three year break thereafter due to unforeseen circumstances. In 1999 they re-grouped and fielded two teams in divisions one and two of the Asian League. Playing on Wanstead Flats in Cape Road, Forest Gate, the club quickly progressed and in 2011/12 won the Essex Corinthian Sunday Football League. Having then, secured a ground share agreement to use the Old Spotted Dog ground, they successfully applied to join the Essex senior League. In their first season, under the management of Ricky Eaton, great things were expected of Bari due to their recruitment of some very useful players at higher level than the Essex Senior League. In matches against Clapton FC last season, Bari won Clapton’s ‘home’ match 3-0 whilst the game when Bari were deemed to the hosts was drawn 1-1. However, surprisingly they never fulfilled their promise at this level and finished in a disappointing mid table position. In the close season, Mr Merchant took up a position as chairman of Redbridge FC and with him went Team manager, Ricky Eaton. The new chairman of London Bari is Mr Tony Ray and we wish him well. Mr Ray has taken no time in looking to the future by establishing a London Bari Football Charity which looks to help, develop and support the lives or careers of young people through sport. Meanwhile on the park, London Bari’s performances have been disappointing. The upheaval of the summer left those remaining at the club with a huge task and this has been reflected by their results. At present they prop up the league table but some excellent recent results have seen then dramatically close the gap at the bottom and who know, just as the irrepressible spirit of the Tons helped us to overhaul Bowers last season, Bari might just upset the odds and catch greenhouse London at the post. Thus, tonight is the ‘Dog Derby’ and no one at Clapton should not underestimate our visitors’ who would love to further their revival by putting one over on their ‘supposed’ landlords this evening. Earlier in the season the Tons won the ‘Bari home game’ here at the Dog by two goals to nil with Jerome Martelli and a ‘worldie’ from John Hughes separating the teams. We wish the players, officials and supporters of London Bari FC well for the rest of season.


APSA – LUTELY FABULOUS ! by Dan Barron (Scaffold Dan)

With no volunteers to write up this beauty-of-a-match report, I'm doing it again - sorry! However this time there's the added twist that the accuracy of my report decreases as we move through the stages of this game, marked by cans of Tyskie. Can 1. We arrive at this athletics ground with a football pitch in it, with lots of time to spare and hang up all the banners, so we looked the part and they could dry cos they got soaked on Thursday. We have a quick chat with Woodsy who says we're only starting with 2 subs because we've got so many out but we've got a new keeper Cain Davies on loan from Wingate and Finchley but Orient were away and we know what that means and the forward line was completed by Ike Nzurba who's been really promising so far. The solid Maynard, Sam Naylor and Duckie were at the back but we were missing Ben Lowes, Briggsy and Rafa (who's now left to Enfield) in the middle giving a chance for Deano to show what he could do in there. Clapton followed what seems to be a fairly regular pattern of either scoring no goals or scoring early goals by scoring an early goal, Tommy Jeffes keeping his cool and showing strength before tucking away The opener with only a few minutes gone, sparking mad jumping and shouting from the Ultras which resulted in the end of can 1. Can 2. The atmosphere was great and Clapton were pressing well and looking dangerous when on the attack, I was so hungover I took some Ibruprofen, and I'm sure APSA had a shot that went miles over the bar. The Tons were having fun and the buzz in the terrace was only improved after Ike Nzurba's goal put us on the path to win away. Can 3. Half time happened around this point and we felt confident in the team, everyone was looking good, linking up well, pressing APSA and we were creating chances. The second half was solid, although we failed to extend our lead, it felt as if Clapton were in control for the majority of the game. Can 4. A random man called Gavin who, we'd not met before, had clearly not read the instructions on his bottle of JD which said 'Please drink responsibly', was being irresponsible and seemed hell bent on one man invasions of different amenities the ground had to offer, having a jog on the running track and then a rest on a bench he shouldn't have been on. APSA pulled a late goal back but despite a little tension in the stands we held on, sparking great celebrations with the players who were clearly delighted with 3 points after 3 defeats in a row this week. Top statman Miles' official headcount ended up as a nice round 50, 47 of which he claims came to see the Clapton.


WALTER DANIEL JOHN TULL (28th April 1888 – 25th March 1918)

Walter Tull was born in Folkestone on 28th April 1888. His father was a carpenter from Barbados who had moved to Folkestone and married a local woman. By the age of nine, Walter had lost both his parents, and when he was 10 he and his brother Edward were sent to a Methodist orphanage in Bethnal Green. His brother left the orphanage two years later, was adopted by a Scottish family and became a dentist. Meanwhile, Walter played for the orphanage football team, and in 1908, began playing for Clapton FC. It has been widely, and mistakenly, reported in articles in both football and national press that Walter played for Clapton Orient (now Leyton Orient). Other reports state that Clapton FC were a local team and infers that the Tons were a mere 'bunch of amateurs'. How wrong they are. Amateur they may have been, however the Clapton team of this era were one of the best non-professional outfits in England. Whilst playing for the Clapton FC, Walter Tull won winner's medals in the FA Amateur Cup, London County Amateur Cup and London Senior Cup. He, and Clapton FC, were certainly not a naĂŻve 'bunch of amateurs'. However, Walter Tull had been identified as a player of great skill and, in March 1909, the Football Star called him 'the catch of the season'. In the photo (above) of the FA Amateur Cup winning team of 1909, Walter Tull is in the front row, one from the right. In 1909 he signed as a professional for Tottenham Hotspur and whilst with the Spurs he experienced, for the first time, spectator racism when his team travelled to play Bristol City. According to one observer, 'a section of the spectators made a cowardly attack on him in language lower than Billingsgate.' The correspondent continued: "Let me tell those Bristol hooligans that Tull is so clean in mind and method as to be a model for all white men who play football whether they be amateur or professional. In point of ability, if not actual achievement, Tull was the best forward on the field" In October 1911 Tull moved to Northampton Town where he played half-back and scored nine goals in 110 senior appearances. When the First World War broke out, be became the first Northampton player to sign up to join the 17th (1st Football) Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment, and in November 1915 his battalion arrived in France. The Army soon recognised Tull's leadership qualities and he was quickly promoted to the rank of sergeant. In July 1916, Tull took part in the major Somme offensive. Tull survived this experience but in December 1916 he developed trench fever and was sent home to England to recover. Tull had impressed his senior officers and recommended that he should be considered for further promotion. When he recovered from his illness, instead of being sent back to France, he went to the


officer training school at Gailes in Scotland. Despite military regulations forbidding "any negro or person of colour" being an officer, Tull received his commission in May, 1917. Lieutenant Walter Tull was then sent to the Italian front. This was an historic occasion because Tull was the first ever black officer in the British Army. He led his men at the Battle of Piave and was mentioned in dispatches for his "gallantry and coolness" under fire. Tull stayed in Italy until 1918 when he was transferred to France to take part in the attempt to break through the German lines on the Western Front. On 25th March, 1918, 2nd Lieutenant Tull was ordered to lead his men on an attack on the German trenches at Favreuil. Soon after entering No Mans Land, Tull was hit by a German bullet. Tull was such a popular officer that several of his men made valiant efforts under heavy fire from German machineguns to bring him back to the British trenches. These efforts were in vain as Tull had died soon after being hit. He was the first British-born black army officer and the first black officer to lead white British troops into battle. In 1997 an appeal was launched in Northampton to recognise Walter Tull’s achievements, inspired by research undertaken by Phil Vasili and an enthusiastic local fan. In July 1999 a memorial to Walter was finally unveiled at Sixfields the home ground of The Cobblers, and the approach road to the stadium renamed Walter Tull Way. More recently, the offices of Probation Services in the centre of Northampton have been renamed Walter Tull House. Walter’s status as a war hero should also be considered in the context of other un-named Black soldiers who fought for Britain in both World Wars and other battles across the world over hundreds of years. In September 2013 Clapton supporters left a framed dedication to Walter Tull on Bay 7 of the Memorial in Arras, northern France So, journos, archivists, playwrights and the football world in general, please remember that Walter Tull first made his mark on the game of football at the Old Spotted Dog ground and with Clapton FC.

Please sign the petition to award Walter Tull his posthumous Military Cross Walter was the first black outfield player in football's top flight and the first black soldier to become an infantry officer in the British army. 2nd Lieutenant Walter Daniel John Tull led his men on dangerous missions behind enemy lines and returned without loss or injury. For these acts of bravery, he was cited for his "gallantry and coolness" under fire by Major General Sir Sydney Lawford, his commanding officer and recommended for the Military Cross. Untypically, for officers with his service record and commendation, he never received it. Was it because he embodied a contradiction? The Manual of Military Law forbade men not of 'pure European descent' from becoming officers.

Please join us in demanding the government right this historical injustice by signing this e-petition to posthumously award Walter Daniel John Tull his Military Cross. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/41209
