When David Ashworth resigned in 1922 after two title wins Matt McQueen was promoted to manager.
He had played for the club in the 1890’s and was an all-rounder, playing in all eleven positions during his career, including 49 times as goalkeeper.
After taking over as manager during the 1922/23 season, McQueen guided the club to the title that season – his only honour in his five-year managerial career.
McQueen lost a leg in a road accident and was forced to retire in 1928. He died in 1944.
