Arthur Wood, the team's top goalscorer
Arthur Wood, the team's top goalscorer

The 1919–20 Gillingham Football Club season was their 22nd season in England's Southern League, and their 21st in the league's Division One. George Collins was appointed as Gillingham's new manager, and most of the players were new; the club struggled to find a settled team during the season, fielding nearly 40 players, including 6 goalkeepers. Gillingham finished in 22nd place out of 22 teams but nonetheless gained entry to the national Football League when it absorbed the entirety of the Southern League Division One. Gillingham also competed in the FA Cup, progressing from the sixth qualifying round before losing in the first round proper. The team played 47 competitive matches, winning 11, drawing 10, and losing 26. Arthur Wood (pictured) was the team's top goalscorer, with 12 goals in the league and 14 in total. Tom Leslie made the most appearances, playing 40 times. The highest attendance recorded that season at the club's home ground, Priestfield Road, was approximately 10,000. (Full article...)

Yellow-bellied sapsucker

The yellow-bellied sapsucker (Sphyrapicus varius) is a medium-sized woodpecker which is found across Canada, eastern Alaska and the northeastern United States. These birds winter in the eastern United States, West Indies and Central America. They have also been found as a very rare vagrant in Ireland and Great Britain. The yellow-bellied sapsucker has a length of around 20 centimetres and an average weight of around 50 grams, with a wingspan that ranges from 34 to 40 centimetres. The forehead is coloured bright red in the male (and very occasionally yellow), and a lighter shade of red in the female. This male was photographed in Central Park, New York City, United States.
