    Can anyone point me in the right direction so that I can find out about a relative who I think might have payed in the reserves for Tottenham abt 1921/22.

    His name was Henry Serjeant b 1905 and lived in Edith Road, Tottenham with his parents.
    Apparently, during a game he was crushed between 2 players that caused injuries that lead to his death.
    He died on 16 Dec 1922 age 17 yrs from pneumonia.

    Thanks

    Perhaps you could try contacting the Club Historian. That's probably the most ideal first port of call for something like this.

    He would have died in a 0-0 draw against Chelsea, that is the game played that day.

    It was a reserve match and as I believe it he died a while later due to injuries sustained in the match.

    @aakarlhamo I'm sure Andy would be the guy to ask & happy to help also. I've contacted him several times in the past & he's always responded & been very helpful. His work email is andy.porter@ tottenhamhotspur.com
