Albert Shelley to the rescue


January 13, 1934
Victor Street (38), of Crampmoor, Romsey, groundsman at the Dell, Southampton, received a severe gash on his right arm when preparing for the cup-tie on Saturday morning. He was fixing a notice at the back of the west stand when he slipped, and his forearm was ripped on the corrugated iron fencing. The injury was bound up by Bert Lee, the Saint’s trainer, and then Street was taken to hospital by car to the Royal South Hants and Southampton Hospital in the charge of Albert Shelley, the Saint’s A team coach. After several stitches had been inserted he was taken to a ward.
