This paper examines the only concerted attempt by a group of southern amateur gentlemen to enter a club in the Football League during the 1920s. None of the players that had committed to the club, which was named the Argonauts, have ever been named. After extensive original research, this paper identifies a numbwer of the prospective players and some of the upper classes who encouraged the club ranging from a former Mayor of London to the King. This paper was given at the annual conference of the British Society of Sports Historians on 10 September 2010. A 3,000-word article based on the paper was published in Issue 27 March 2011 of Soccer History.
