Jabez Cartwright

Jabez Cartwright began his football career at Mapperly and Grantham Town in February 1912. He was a right back who very soon transferred for £110.00 to Bolton Wanderers but for some reason he never played for the Burnden Park club. He joined Merthyr Town FC in January 1914 and played in the Southern League fixture at Portsmouth. His appearances were mainly in The Southern League Charity Cup and South Wales Senior Cup. He was released by Merthyr Town at the end of the season and he rejoined Grantham Town in 1914. Private Jabez Cartwright of the Lincolnshire Regiment was killed in action on 4th October 1917 and he is remembered at Tyne Cot Memorial.
