Thorfinn F.C.1900: 1.

I believe that the Teams played what was called the winter League and the games were held in Stromness on Sunday because it would have been the only day off for most of the men.

Thanks for the photo Phil, J.W.Inkster was my great uncle. I knew that he played for Thorinn but I didn't know what position he played, but, I assume by the photo, he played right half.

Query re. James W. Inkster. Is this James William Inkster (cabinetmaker) who married Elizabeth Sinclair? (Elizabeth died in 1939). If so, he was also my great uncle and the younger brother of my grandmother, Maggie Ann Inkster.

Hi Clare, yes this is the same James William Inkster cabinetmaker. His wife Elizabeth (Lizzie) Sinclair was my great aunt so I was only related to JWI through marriage.
I knew of relatives of Jim in I think Glasgow but that was longer ago than I care to remember.If you want any further info, not that I have much
pricesinclair@tiscali.co.uk should find me.
