I spotted this in Hebburn Ellison Football Team records on Patrick Brennan's 'Donmouth' website which might interest you both. |
Season 1911-12 was more successful for Argyle. Although they only managed to finish thirteenth out of nineteen, they did have some silverware to show for their efforts, in the form of the Tynemouth Infirmary Cup. It was also a success in financial terms, in that they finished the season with a surplus of £37 11s 6d, thanks largely to £100 in transfer fees received from Sheffield United for two players, Bert Pearson and Billy Cook. This was more than the club's wage bill for the season (£85 9s 7d). The Committee comprised Charles Williams (Chairman), John Barrett (vice-Chairman), John Lavery (Secretary), Mr McIlhinny (Financial Secretary), and Mr G Watson (Treasurer).
