Excellent read. I would commend it to all 'owners'. So there you have it, Spen, in black and white: "thousands of pounds as a ‘signing on’ fee, plus a very good weekly wage" to play for the Pride of County Durham.

This for a 33-year old bit-part player, what were they paying their top players????
"At a meeting held at the Grammar School on Friday last - Mr Phillip Wood M.A., in the chair - it was resolved to form an Association Football Club for Darlington and neighbourhood. The opinions of those present were so unanimous as to the desirability of this step, that a committee was formed to complete the organisation of the club, and Mr Craven, 17, Garden Street, was appointed secretary pro tem." - The Northern Echo, Monday 23rd July 1883
