"ROBERT CORRIGAN. Seven years' foreign service with the Royal North Lancashire Regiment, including long spells in India and China, have given Corrigan, one of Exeter City's new centre forwards, a whole lot of interesting experiences. A native of Manchester, his first club on leaving the Army was Patricroft in the South-East Lancashire League, from whence he removed to Eccles United, a Manchester League club. With Eccles he stayed till Hurst, the Cheshire League club, transferred their centre-forward, Cheetham, to Swansea Town. Corrigan then signed for Hurst, and in their last five games he scored nine goals from the centre-forward position. While in the Army he played regularly as a full back, but is now a fully experienced centre forward. His transfer to Exeter City was effected on May 9th."
