<< Season 1922-23 >>

Manager Jack Smith left to run a pub at the end of the 1921-22 season, but it was to be eight months before a successor was appointed. The directors, led by chairman J.E. Phillips, secretary Harry Bray and former manager Harry Matthews, were in charge of picking the team. Eventually Matthews resigned, provoking a full-time appointment in Arthur Chadwick.
