Description

1890s Coalville Town card with an "H.Bunting" inset.
NOTE: a William Bunting born in Daventry, not too far from Coalville, captained the England rugby team
at around the time of this card, 1887. Often these cards would have a wrong initial or slightly misspelled name.
NO GUARANTEES but it's possible. Interesting that this card predates both Coalville Town FC as we know them today, and Coalville rugby (1903). So, there was a Coalville Town FC that's slipped the modern record
