The Start of the Norris Era


This 24 page booklet is the second in a new from the Arsenal Independent Supporters' Association, and looks at why Henry Norris, leading shareholder in Fulham FC, Mayor of Fulham, and regular columnist, should even be interested in taking over a club like Woolwich Arsenal – a club so clearly in trouble.

It also considers why Arsenal were in financial trouble and explores why Woolwich Arsenal had a reputation across the UK and the Empire that was far greater than its achievements on the pitch would lead us to expect.

This groundbreaking piece of work outlines the important events during the early years of Arsenal's history. Authors, Andy Kelly, Tony Attwood and Mark Andrews have discovered new information about Arsenal’s history that effectively turn much of what was previously known about the club’s past upside down.
