Today’s anniversaries

6 October 1894: James Henderson scored in the 5-2 win over Lincoln to continue his all time record breaking run and exactly reversed the score between the clubs on 1 September 1894.

6 October 1894: Luton’s first match in the Southern League.  They have claimed to have been a professional team before Arsenal, but records suggest only two or three of their players were professional in 1891, when Arsenal turned fully professional.

6 October 1900: Archie Cross league debut: a 1-1 away draw with Blackpool.  He played just three games at right back that season, but started out the following season as a first choice player in that position.

6 October 1906: Arsenal 2 Liverpool 1 took Arsenal to the top of the league for the very first time ever, and this despite a 4-1 defeat to Bury in the second match of the season.

6 October 1919: Tommy Lawton was born in Farnworth, Lancashire.  He signed for his first club, Burnley in 1935.  In 1937 at the age of 17 he moved on to Everton for £6500 playing next to Dixie Dean.  He quickly made it into the England team.

6 October 1948: Arsenal 4 Manchester United 3.  Charity Shield match played at Highbury with a crowd of 31,000.  Lewis got two, Rooke and Jones one each.

6 October 1956: Cliff Holton became the first player since Jack Lambert to score more than three goals for Arsenal in a single game.  The result was Arsenal 7 Manchester City 3.  Holton (4), Evans Bloomfield and Haverty.

6 October 1962: Tommy Caton born in Liverpool, started out with Man City in 1978 and played in the cup final aged 18.   By the time he was 19 he had played 100 first division games, and although obviously not a goal scorer by trade he did score two against Arsenal on 4 December 1982.

6 October 1962: Tottenham 4 Arsenal 4 (Court 2, McLeod and Strong).  61,749 attended the game.  The week before Tottenham had beaten Nottingham Forest 9-2, and in this game went three up in 26 minutes.  Arsenal eventually went 4-2 down but battled back to get the point.

6 October 1964: Debut for Frank McLintock – a 0-3 home defeat to Nottingham Forest in a run of four defeats in five matches.  McLintock however was not blamed for the problems and took over the No 4 shirt from Geoff Strong for most of the rest of the season.

6 October 1966: Niall Quinn born.  He played first for Manortown United and after an unsuccessful trial at Fulham he signed professional forms Arsenal in 1983.

6 October 1970: Arsenal 1 Luton 0 in League Cup.  David Court played for Luton.  Arsenal went out to Crystal Palace in the next round after a replay, but when thinking of this season no one thinks of the league cup.

6 October 1973: Liam Brady played his first match for Arsenal as a sub in a 1-0 victory against Birmingham City.  Kennedy scored Arsenal’s goal.

6 October 1981: Arsenal lose 0-1 to Sheffield United in League Cup.  Fortunately there was a second leg to come, which Arsenal won 2-0 in extra time.

6 October 1984: Arsenal returned to the top of the league with a 1-0 win over Everton, Charlie Nicholas scoring a penalty.  It was one of five consecutive wins.

6 October 2002: Arsenal beat Sunderland 3-1 to make it 7 wins and 2 draws in 9 – and 30 consecutive unbeaten in all – a new Premier League record.  It was the last game of the sequence – Arsenal lost the next match.

6 October 2012: Olivier Giroud scored first goal in 3-1 away win against WHU.  His goal equalised an opening goal from West Ham.  He also set up the second goal for Walcott.  Santi Cazorla got the third.

6 October 2013: The Arsenal History Society presented a 10 year comparative analysis of the first six games of the season in order to overcome hype about best and worst starts.

 

 


On this day in 1927 the first ever “talkie” (a film with a sound track) opened in New York. It was “The Jazz Singer” staring Al Jolson.


 

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.
