Today’s anniversaries

Arsenal buy Highbury, Wilshere gets the number 10 shirt

Henry Norris at the Arsenal

Arsenal’s first ever FA Cup match at Highbury and a challenge for promotion: Jan 1914

 

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

We are developing the story on three fronts:

1: A series of articles charting the ups and downs of Arsenal and Norris’ activity in the club from the moment he took over.

2: A series giving a biography of every player who played for Arsenal during Norris’ reign as chairman
