A.D. Jones & Co. - Our Footballers

Our Footballers
A.D. Jones & Co.
192 photos

192 cabinet sized photographs issued in eight publications. Some of the players and teams are obviously football, some are obviously rugby, but some are not so easy to identify, so not all the non-rugby ones are football, some will probably be rugby. 191 listed out of 192.
UPDATE (13-03-2022 20:11):  The checklist is now complete, thanks to Phil Martin.
UPDATE (28-03-2022 19:00):  
Phil Martin has provided a comprehensive review of my original list, making a few minor corrections, re. initials, sequences etc. and the occasional spelling, creating a list of the pages in order, booklet by booklet. The numbers are just sequential, as there is no pagination in the booklets. Phil has also provided scans of each of the booklet covers. All the prints are double-sided - 1 & 2, 3 & 4, etc. through to 191 & 192.

  1. Just seen this entry Alan. Daft question I suppose but why are you missing one? Do you know which Part it was from? Maybe I should just go through them all!?!

  2. Hi Phil,

    Thanks for commenting. Accodring to my list it's whatever is on the reverse of the Broughton Rangers team photo.


  3. Found it Alan! The caption says "T. Coop (Captain)". He was Thomas (Tom) Coop who played both Rugby Union & Rugby League. He played for Leigh, Lancashire and got one RU cap for England.

    1. Hi Phil,

      That's brilliant, thank you very much. I always enjoy it when a checklist is completed.



  4. I believe this set is a year earlier than 1897 as Dennis Hodgetts left Aston Villa in the summer of 1896

    1. That transfer might have taken place in 1896 but these volumes were published in 1897.


Please feel free to leave a comment, though it will not appear straight away, as I will need to authorize it.
