I am grateful to Ian Arkesden for the image shown below. It includes his Great Granddad Tom Arkesden who played for Burton Wanderers from 1895 to 1897 at the start of his career. He later went on to play for Burton United in the 1902 to 1903 season. The picture is of Burton United during the 1902-03 season.
