Barclays Bank

Opponents of the Lilywhites in the Southern Amateur League, Barclays Bank played on the company's sports ground at Norbury, London. Situated in the grounds of Norbury Hall, the sports ground had originally been set up by J W Hobbs (who then owned the Hall) and also included a cricket ground. It was here that in 1888 C Thornton's XI entertained the Australian cricket tourists. In 1911 the ground was sold to the South West Bank, who in 1918 were taken over by Barclays. Barclays, who sold the ground in the early1990s and today a Leisure Centre occupies the site.
