Gainsborough born wing half Albert Farrow joined Gainsborough WMC & Institute in 1905 before being signed by hometown Second Division club Gainsborough Trinity in 1906, for whom he made his Football League debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers that October. He immediately established himself in the Gainsborough team playing 26 matches that season, but the following season only played 10 more times and only once in 1908. He joined Southern League Watford in August 1908 but didn’t appear in a winning team in his first six Southern League matches after making his debut in a 0-0 draw with Queen’s Park Rangers, but was recalled for the last three games of the season, all of which were won. However he was released in the close season of 1909 and joined non league Worksop Town, where he remained until 1912. In the First World War he began military service with the Lincolnshire Regiment in June 1916 and was soon transferred to the South Staffordshires, but was diagnosed with tuberculosis and consequently discharged from the army in August of that year, and died a few weeks later at the age of 29.
