Johnny Canham
(1904/05 - 1919/20)
Canham made his debut for the reserves in 1903/04 and progressed to the first team the following season, the club's first season of senior status (the last season the club played as Wimbledon Old Centrals). In 1906/07 he also turned out for Woodside in the Wimbledon & District League (alongside several ex-Wimbledon players). He played for the newly named Wimbledon prior to the temporary suspension of play in 1910 and, after a couple of seasons playing alongside future Don George Cannon with Tooting Graveney / Tooting, returned to help reform the club as captain in 1912. Continued to play until the club closed due to the Great War and returned again to help the club restart after the hostilities, playing a handful of games before retiring from the field and joining the committee.
