Belper born wing half Jack Bollington’s Football League career is as curious as much of his previous history is unknown. It is known that he had been playing Southern League football for Southend United, when by then aged 28 he started the inaugural Football League season for The Shrimpers, missing Southend’s first two games late in August but playing at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday 4th of September as Brighton won 1-0. He must have had a very good weekend in Brighton as by Monday 6th September he was making his Brighton & Hove Albion debut, having switched clubs, albeit a long trip to Merthyr Tydfil to play Merthyr Town with his new team mates did not go well as Merthyr prevailed 4-1! He stayed in the team till early November before losing his place, then was recalled for 5 games in January, including 2 FA Cup ties, a total of 16 Brighton appearances, before his Football League career was over. It is uncertain what happened to him other than 2 years later in 1924 he died at far too young an age.
