Beyond England

Retired from football with cancer of the face! By vocation an artist, designer and draughtsman, and in 1911 underwent a severe operation.  Nonetheless, although too old for military service, he served in Rouen, France, with the YMCA during the First World War.  In the twenties, in poor health, he fell on hard times, and so strained were his circumstances that, in 1923, Aston Villa set up a fund to help him. - An English Football Internationalists' Who's Who. Douglas Lamming (1971). Hatton Press, p.265/6./Aston Villa Player Database
