Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. William "Bill" Appleyard was an English footballer, whose career at the highest level was cut short through injury. Born in Caistor, Appleyard was best known for wearing the number nine shirt for Newcastle United. He signed for the club in 1903 from Grimsby Town and went on to win the Championship twice as well as being a finalist in two FA Cup finals. He was known as "Cockles," a reference to a previous job he had as a fisherman. Appleyard stood at 6ft and weighed over 14 stone. He scored Newcastle's first FA Cup hat-trick - against his former club Grimsby on 7 March 1908.show more
