2/9/1908, Millwall 2 Exeter 2, first pro match.
One of my favourite ever away days.
I remember when your dad mentioned a suspension when he talked at the SR meeting. I’m pretty sure he said 4 Bookings(they were not dished out like they are in recent times of course ) would lead to a suspension of at least 2 weeks. Plus any suspension meant the club did not have to pay the player concerned wages for the period of the suspension.Dunno mate, but he was suspended every few games because he kept getting sent off - if you look at the ‘complete record’ you’ll see regular three or four game gaps throughout his career, even in the reserves at Villa
