I have found 3 anniversaries for 2 June…
- 1947: Tom Whittaker becomes manager
- 1934 Wilf Copping joined Arsenal from Leeds United
- 1991 Gus Caesar moved to Cambridge United.
Anyone who saw our league cup final against Luton Town will remember Gus Caesar, and perhaps no more should be said.
Tom Whittaker does deserve coverage of course, and we have an article on him that may be of interest from the iconic moments series.
There is no article on Wilf Copping as yet, but the basics are…
George Allison introduced Wilf Copping to the team, after taking over from Joe Shaw as manager, in the summer of 1934 for £8,000, as a replacement for Bob John at left half.
