Arthur Arrowsmith (1869 – 1954) was an English footballer who played in the Football League for Stoke and Wolverhampton Wanderers.[1]

Career[edit]

Arrowsmith was born in Wolverhampton and played for Compton and Coventry City before joining Stoke in 1906.[1] He was a regular in the side in 1906–07 as he scored eight goals in 37 appearances but it was a terrible season for Stoke as they were relegation from the First Division for the first time.[1] He remained with the club in the Second Division but was sold to Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 1908.[1] He failed to make the grade at Wolves and left for non-league Willenhall Swifts.[1]
