Player Profiles

The majority of the players who are profiled on these pages were not known to me but the research has proved more than fascinating, in fact it has been inspirational.  To see these young men, especially in the early years of the 20th century, battle against poverty and horrendous working conditions as well as two World Wars and still maintain a high level of performance and sportsmanship was a revelation and is a world away from the examples we see on the football fields of England in the 21st century.
