    Default 20 September 1890

    Sunderland had two points deducted from their total for playing J.E. Doig in goal against West Bromwich Albion earlier in the month before he was registered. At that time there was a 14 day qualification rule and Sunderland had played him in the week they signed him from Blackburn Rovers. Doig was the greatest goalkeeper of his day, 5' 10” tall and weighing almost 13 stone, he was great positioner. Began with Arbroath and was capped for Scotland whilst with that club, had a few weeks with Blackburn and then joined Sunderland. Spent fourteen years with that club and missed few matches, only 3 in his first six seasons, and won 4 Championship medals. Moved to Liverpool in 1904 winning a Second Division medal that season. Handed over the position in the following year to Sam Hardy, destined to be the finest goalie of his time. Won 6 Scottish caps and died in November 1919 at the age of 51.
