Twelve months’ rest for Howard Spencer


July 3, 1901
Howard Spencer’s name does not appear among those players re-engaged by the Aston Villa Football Club. The famous back does not intend to play next season. He is not sound, and thinks the only way to get so is to give his leg and ankle a complete rest for twelve months.
(Dundee Evening Post: July 3, 1901)
