Charlie Roberts’ Players Union Armband, 1909

Charlie Roberts was instrumental in founding the union, but as his team prepared to defend the FA Cup at the start of the 1909-10 season, the FA banned all players who were members. The players protested and the ban was lifted just in time for the start of the season.
