Mr. John Humble is the well-known chairman of the Woolwich Arsenal Football Company. He is a north-countryman, well versed in the Association game, and is generally popular among the professionals at Plumstead.
In the transference of the club head-quarters from the Invcita Ground to Manor Field Mr. Humble took a very great interest, and his shrewd business capacity admirably adapts him for the position of chairman.
He is a dark pleasant-featured man, well on the right side of forty, and during the season now closing he has often accompanied the team in their engagements away from home.
