From the Daily Chronicle 23rd March 1918. George Anderson had been playing for Manchester United since 1911until he tried to fix a match in December 1917 and was suspended for life. At the trial featured in the cutting he was sentenced to 8 months in prison. It is a sign of the times that someone can be refered to several times in the article by the term 'A Jew' or 'the Jew'.
