To the memory of Arthur Wharton

Last week we wrote about Arthur Wharton, the World’s first black professional footballer. As an addendum to that we’ve got a photo (shown above with the kind permission of @TonyCSGreenall) of the commemorative headstone which was placed on his hitherto unmarked grave in Edlington Cemetery, Doncaster in 1997. The headstone, funded by the Football Unites, Racism Divides campaign helps ensure that his achievements and legacy will remain visible for many years to come.
