Post by firstname.lastname@example.org
The Boston and District League was the top amateur soccer league in the area from the early 1900s on. The earliest references I’ve found were in 1907.
Lynn Hibernians fell, 3-1, to eventual champions Fall River Rovers in the third round of the 1917 National Challenge Cup (U.S. Open Cup).
Other teams in the league included: Boston Americans, Boston Rovers (Jamaica Plain), Brockton, Carters, Charlestown, General Electrics, Lynn Fosse, Lynn Hibernians, Lynn Thistles, Quincy, Riverdale, St. George, Swedish Americans, Trimo, Waltham.
