20 George Browell

Biography

George Browell, the first of three brothers to play for City in the early years of the club’s history, was the club’s first right half. He was one of City’s most prominent and regular players in the pre-WW1 period. He joined from West Stanley, a non-league team from County Durham, in September 1905 and was a constant presence in the City first XI for the club’s first five Division Two seasons. In 1910/11 he was again a regular starter during the first half of the season, but was used sparingly in the New Year.

Browell was born in Walbottle, then a bucolic village alongside Hadrian’s Wall and now an outer suburb of Newcastle. He moved to Grimsby Town in 1911 but after a season at Blundell Park Browell returned to West Stanley. He died in 1951.
