    1. Hi Martin,

      I have tried to get a better picture of the career of JH Sambrook this evening, but without any luck. I have searched newspapers of the area and it seems to be three different people connected with football that is named Sambrook. One I know for sure it is not JH is the referee some newspapers refers to. Then you have Sambrook at Coventry, at West Bromwich at Wolves, at Liverpool and Southport. The strange thing is that the Wolves Sambrook, which went to Liverpool is in one newspaper named as “James Sambrook”.

      What do you know about your grand fahter`s career?
