Dial Square play their first ever game
David Danskin, Jack Humble, Morris Bates, Fred Beardsley and the rest of the team travel to Millwall to play Dial Square's first ever game, against the mysterious Eastern Wanderers (little is known about this team). Elijah Watkins (the secretary of Dial Square) later reminisces about that first game, saying: > Talk about a football pitch! This one eclipsed any I ever heard of or saw. I could not venture to say what shape it was, but it was bounded by backyards as to about two-thirds of the area, and the other portion was...I was going to say a ditch, but I think an open sewer would be more appropriate Dial Square ends up winning the game 6-0, and this is the last time the team plays under this name.
