Footnotes

  • John 'Jack' Fairbrother (1917 – 1999) moved to Preston North End in 1937, but had failed to break into the first team by the outbreak of World War II. During the war, he became Preston's first choice goalkeeper, helping them do the wartime double in 1941, winning the Football League North and the Football League War Cup. With the war at an end, the Football League resumed in the 1946-47 season, Fairbrother finally making his league debut missing only one game that season, eventually moving to Newcastle United in July 1947 for a fee of £6,500. His Newcastle debut came in the 1947-48 season and he was a regular as Newcastle won the 2nd Division Championship that season. He was first choice for four seasons making 132 League and 12 F.A. Cup appearances, including the 1951 F.A .Cup final victory over Blackpool at Wembley.
