Arsenal Ease To Win Over Derby County On This Day, 17th March 1906

Woolwich Arsenal were enjoying their best run of the season, a fourth consecutive home win in the month of March had eased relegation fears. Indeed, they would lose just once in the League during the Spring months which meant a mid-table finish was comfortably achieved.

Match reports in the national press in those days were few and far between, typically reduced to a paragraph beyond one or two games of the day. This Daily Mirror photo though, remains one of my favourite football pictures.
