c 1890This picture is not immediately recognizable as a football team, the long trousers and berets- perhaps the only clue the shinguards on the 2 centrally seated men.
It is however Wageningen Cricket and Football Club Go Ahead. Established in 1886 Go Ahead were founder members of the Netherlands Football and Athletics Association.
They played in the Eerste Klasse Oost from its inception in 1896 until 1903, when they merged with Victoria (founded in 1889*) to become Go Ahead Victoria Combination.
GVC still exists as the Wageningen University football team.
*the GVC website gives Victoria's foundation year as 1892.
