    On this day in 1893....

    The club committee was negotiating to sign a goalkeeper - Edmund "Teddy" Bee. The club minute book says -
    “that Mr Bee be offered the sum of 22/6 per week, the same to include travelling expenses except on the extra days viz. Good Friday, Bank Holidays and Easter Tuesday. That a reply must be received with 7 days if not left to Secretary to advertise for goal keeper”

    Also the minute book mentions a football agent for the first time.
    “That secretary ascertain the terms of an agent for finding a player and in the event of these being unfavourable to advertise in the Athletic News for forwards”.

      Perhaps Jones should put an advert for players in the Athletic News

        We did get players apply through adverts. Getting an unbiased opinion on them was difficult though. If possible the club commitee asked their players for an opinion - Hugh Galbraith in particular who had played in the FL and Northern League.
        I have seen extracts from an agent's book from the 1890's where he lists players, their position, age, height etc and where they can play. He also states what level they could play at - his opinion probably - and the wages wanted.
