Agate and Sparkes were popular Horsham footballers 100 years ago, so drew a big crowd for this fundraiser.
“There was a fair attendance on the Horsham ground on Saturday when a comic match between teams captained by Charlie Agate and F.C. Sparkes was played on behalf of the Local Relief Fund.
“Enlivening music was played by the Horsham Town Band, the members of which gave their services free. The game was played under pleasing conditions and amidst much merriment, excellent fooling in fact.”
