From Royal to Woolwich Arsenal

May 1, 1893
Next season the Royal Arsenal F.C. will be carried on as a limited liability company, with £4,000 capital, and will be known as “The Woolwich Arsenal Football and Athletic Company (Limited),” the word “Royal” having to be dropped for obvious reasons.

The season, brought to a close on Saturday, is reported to have been in every way satisfactory to those concerned, and most if the present team will, in all probability, be seen in the same ranks next September.
(Sheffield Evening Telegraph: May 1, 1893)
