* In !995, the first Warrior-Raider Trophy was awarded to the winning team of the Thanksgiving game. It was created by both the Wakefield Warrior Club and The Friends of Melrose Football.

 

* The first Thanksgiving game against Melrose was 1960 although in 1912 the Wakefield Independents did play Melrose twice. The opening game that year was held on the park, (the earlier term used for the common,) and the Independents won 12-6.

On Thanksgiving Day, the game was held at Pine Banks in Melrose, in which the Wakefield Independents were defeated 29-0.

However, there is also a Melrose Journal report of a game played on October 16, 1885 which Melrose won 146-0.

 

* From 1945-1959 Wakefield played Gloucester on Thanksgiving

 

*Wakefields first Thanksgiving game was in the 1933-1934 season-Wakefield 13 Cambridge Latin 0.

 

*Total appreciation and thanks goes to the Wakefield Daily Item for verification when possible and all information and statistics beyond the 1985 season.
