Footnotes

  • The game was closer than the score suggests. Three times he came to the rescue in the first half, newspaper quotes “The Bolton right always looked busy but Harper frustrated their efforts clearing off the line a shot from Tannshill, he again came to the rescue stopping Cassidy when looked to be through”. “Harper the right back proved an impassable obstacle”. Following a successful football career, Theo worked down the mine and formed the first Union “The Spencer Union” at the Bolsover Colliery.
