Arnold Allison

Arnold Allison was in the squad photo in 1930/31 and played for the reserves.

On signing for Exeter in the Summer of 1930 the local press wrote:-

"ARNOLD ALLISON is in his early twenties. He helped Lotham Street United to win the Sheffield Churches' Junior League in season 1923-24, and in the following campaign he established a new record by netting sixty-nine goals in 29 games for them. This made the professional clubs sit up and take notice. Allison in August 1926 took part in a trial match for Grimsby Town and was asked to have another, but Chesterfield stepped in and signed him on, and in the course of a season and a half with the Derbyshire club Allison did so well that he was selected for a Midland Combination eleven against the Champions, Newark Town. He later played for Scarborough and Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he kept in the shade by more experienced players."

Arnold scored 4 goals in a 7-1 win friendly against Ilfracombe on the 15th November 1930.
