Desperate plea from Enoch West


February 2, 1916
Enoch West, one of the suspended footballers in the “scandal match,” has issued the following: –

“£50 reward. – To all whom it may concern: I, Enoch James West (late Manchester United), offer the above sum to be given to any Red Cross Fund if any person or persons can prove that I bet or won any money in any way over the match at Old Trafford, Manchester United v. Liverpool, on Good Friday, 1915, the said match over which I got suspended. (Signed) Enoch James West, 68, Railway-road, Old Trafford.”
