Hyde Name Origins.

The name "HYDE" is derived from the hide, a measure of land for taxation purposes, taken to be that area of land necessary to support a peasant family. In later times it was taken to be equivalent to 120 acres .

Hyde United Centenary Match

Most people know about Hyde United's (then Hyde FC) claim to fame being  beaten 26-0 in the FA Cup by Preston in 1887 - It is still the biggest-ever defeat in English football !!

In 1988 there was a replay at Ewen Fields to mark the clubs centenary.
Here is a scan of the souvenir programme.
It notes Sam Allardyce (West Hams Manager) and Frank Worthington (former player of many professional clubs) as Preston Northend players.

Unfortunately, I cant remember the score if anyone out there can help,
please comment.
