Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alf Common was an English footballer who played at inside forward or centre forward. He is most famous for being the first player to be transferred for a fee of 1,000. Common played for South Hylton and Jarrow in North East England before joining Sunderland in 1900. Sunderland finished Division One runners-up in 1900-01, after which Common transferred to Sheffield United in October 1901 for 325. Neither Sunderland nor Sheffield United had cause to regret the deal in the sense that Sunderland finished as Division One Champions in 1901-02, and Common scored the first goal in the Blades FA Cup final win of 1902 over Southampton.
