Robert Blanthorne transferred to Hartlepools United


January 9, 1911
Robert Blanthorne, the centre forward Newcastle United secured from Grimsby Town, has been transferred to Hartlepools United. It will be recalled he fractured a leg in his only League game for the Newcastle club, against Bradford City, at the opening of the 1908-9 season. In the United Reserve team this season Blanthorne has demonstrated that his recovery is complete, and he should prove quite a capture for the Hartlepools club.
