James Massey – Denaby Goalkeeper (photo and wikipedia link))

October 1901

Mexborough and Swinton Times, October 18

It would appear that Massey, of Denaby, has been dropped completely by the Sheffield Wednesday committee; at any rate, he has not been employed to keep goal this season.

The last time I heard of him he was living in Denaby, but had no regular place in a football team. He is admittedly a good goalkeeper, and it would be a pity if he were lost altogether to the game.

Could not the Denaby Club find him a job now and again? Such a suggestion has been made and carried out, it would have the merit of keeping Massey. In practice, and also keeping his name before the football world.
