Goalkeepers’ jersey

September 6, 1919
Clubs are reminded that there is a League rule that goalkeepers must wear a jersey of a distinctive colour so as not to clash with the other players. These colours as stated in the rule, are royal blue, royal green, scarlet, and white. Already reports are to hand of the infringement of this rule. Though the League do not wish to be harsh, as they recognise the difficulty there is in obtaining jerseys of a particular colour, they wish it to be clearly understood that custodians must turn out in a colour easily discernible and entirely different from that worn by players or spectators. If not the clubs will get into trouble.
