The Impossibles Football Team traced to Callowland area of Watford

Several years ago I posted the following post card image on the web site
The Impossibles 1920/1
The ball is inscribed ?VFC 1920/21 and the players are named on the back and called "The Impossibles."  I have received no suggestions since then about the proper name or location of the club. As the 1911 census is now available I decided to see if I could find any of the players. Because of the ten year gap between the census and the photographers many of the footballers could have been expected to move house  but I was in luck. In 1911 3 players were living in Leavesden Road, Watford, and three more were living in other roads in the Callowland area of Watford.
