Please note:

It was common practice in those days for the printers to re-use surplus copies of the outer cover from a previous home fixture. In this case they used the same cover as used for the fixture against Gillingham two-days earlier on 2nd November and inserted a new middle page with team line-ups for this friendly match played on November 4th 1912.


An exceptionally rare programme for this Monday afternoon mid-season friendly against Manchester City.

In the summer of 1912 George Webb moved from West Ham United to Manchester City of the Football League First Division, but after playing just two games, both 1–0 away wins, against Notts County and Manchester United, he fell out with the Hyde Road club when he discovered that a transfer fee had been paid to the Hammers for his services, which went against his principles as an amateur. Part of the transfer deal also included the playing of a friendly game between West Ham United and Manchester City at the Boleyn Ground on November 4, 1912, the first ever meeting between the two sides, which Manchester City won 4–2.
