Player profile

Tall and strongly built inside-forward Satterthwaite scored a hat-trick in only his second appearance against Glossop at Anfield and was considered as one of best catches the club had ever made considering his performance in his debut 1899/1900 season. "Since the inclusion of Raybould and Satterthwaite in the team, matters have gone ahead with a smoothness which had almost become foreign to the play witnessed before their arrival, and the utility of a decent centre has never been more forcibly exemplified than in the case of the Anfield eleven this season." Satterthwaite played 21 games and scored five goals in the 1900/01 Championship season. Although he was selected for the opening two first division fixtures of 1901/02, he then lost his place and played on only four more occasions for the club's first team. Satterthwaite got his career back on track with West Ham in the Southern league in 1903/04 before joining Woolwich Arsenal in 1904 and earning the distinction of being the first player who scored a first division goal in Arsenal's history, who dropped the "Woolwich" from their name in 1914. He was Arsenal's leading scorer in two of his first three seasons and played a total of 178 games and scored 70 goals in his six-year spell at the Gunners, before rejoining his old club, Workington.
