The Arsenal man with the shortest ever career who rescued children from the war in Libya

This is our daily review of Arsenal anniversaries taken from the Arsenal day by day  files prepared by the AISA Arsenal History Society.

 

Below are the Anniversaries from  October 14.  

Our headline story comes from 1997

14 October 1893: Arsenal’s record FA Cup score of all time came in their first FA Cup match as a league club, beating Ashford 12-0.  See also this article for the full cup run.

14 October 1922: Arsenal lost 0-7 to West Bromwich, as Henry White faded away and Arsenal started a run of 8 without a win.  It was the second time Arsenal lost 0-7 in the first division – the first being 2 October 1909.

14 October 1964: Arsenal beat Corinthian Casuals in the Sheriff of London Shield 7-0

14 October 1984: A Bob Wilson XI played St Albans in a friendly and drew 4-4

14 October 1997: Jason Crowe who played 3 times for England’s under 20s, came on as a sub and was sent off 33 seconds into his debut in a league cup which ended Arsenal 4 Birmingham 1.  In the same game Jehad Muntasser came on two minutes before the end, and was transferred soon after, giving him the shortest ever Arsenal career.  Crowe went on loan to Palace, moving on to Portsmouth, Grimsby, Northampton and other clubs before closing his career at Corby Town in 2013.  Muntasser played in Serie B and C in Italy and became a major force in helping children affected by the 2011 Libyan revolution.  Other débutantes in the game were Manninger, Upson, Vernazza, and Mendez.

Our most recent article on Arsenal’s history…

Arsenal in wartime: November and December 2016

 


On this day in 1066 the population of England lost all the hard gained liberties of the previous 300 years, including the rights of all men to have justice and a fair trial when accused, as the Normans started their conquest of England.  That this date of 1066 is still widely known while few know of the fundamental rights granted to citizens after the country’s creation on 10 January 1018, nor the name of the king who granted these rights (King Knut) nor the date of the restoration of rights with Magna Carta is perhaps a reflection of the poverty of the quality of history teaching in England today.


 

The current series from the Arsenal History Series being developed on this site is  Henry Norris at the Arsenal, covering all aspects off the life and work of the man who rescued Arsenal from extinction, secured the club’s future by moving it to Highbury, and then brought in Herbert Chapman as manager.

The previously untold tale of how it was that Norris came to choose Highbury as the suitable location for Arsenal’s new ground.

The series is being worked on daily, and the articles thus far are here.

Among the many other series we have run are…
