The Anniversaries

29 June 1900: Loughboro FC, the team against whom Arsenal had their largest league victory, finally folded.  They had been in serious financial difficulty for some time and Arsenal had paid their train fares so they could complete their final visit to Plumstead.

29 June 1923: Ernest Williamson was granted a free transfer to Norwich after over 100 games in goal.  He played for Norwich for two seasons, before retiring from football in 1925 after which we lose sight of him completely

29 June 1929: Billy Warnes, one of the “Walsall Experiment” players in Herbert Chapman’s last ever FA Cup match, was signed.  The FA Cup match against Walsall was his only first team game for the club.

29 June 1971: Don Howe left Arsenal having helped guide the club to the Double as first team coach.  He moved on to WBA where he stayed until 1975 before a year at Galatasaray SK after which he returned to Arsenal as manager.

29 June 2015: After much expectation, Arsenal purchased Petr Cech from Chelsea for around £10m.  It was reported that the Chelsea manager Mourinho was particularly unhappy about the sale.


Arsenal in the 1930s – the full story of 1930/1, Arsenal’s first league championship, has been told in a series of 12 episodes.  Probably the most detailed analysis ever published.

We have now reached  October 1931: Arsenal lose to Grimsby

The full index to all the series is on Arsenal History Society Web Site

And elsewhere…

29 June 48BC.  Julius Caesar defeated Pompey to become absolute ruler of Rome.  Thus finally and totally ended the Roman Republic, the world’s greatest early experiment in democracy.
