PLAYER PROFILE:

George Allinson was born in Newcastle in January 1869.
He is one of original White Rose FC players, but team line ups from
the clubs games are limited. His two known appearances from the side
were on November 29th 1884 when they were beaten 8;0 by
local side Addison,. The game is recognised as the football clubs
first ever match. He scored a goal in the other known game, when they
beat Lambert Juniors 5;0. That summer he was seen in two known White
Rose Cricket Club line up, playing alongside a number of the clubs
footballers. The earliest was on May 23rd ,in a win over
Lemington Leading Star. He hit 10 not out in the match. No further
sign of him any football line ups have so far come to light, He
appears to be one of the few White Rose club members that did not go
with the club when they amalgamated with West End. During the summer
of 1886 he was seen more regular in the White Rose cricket side;
featuring in both the semi final and final of the Town Moor
Temperance Festival Junior Cricket Competition. They won the later on
June 29th, defeating Whickham by 39 runs. Only two further
White Roses cricket match appearances have come to light for the
following summer of 1887. Both were against Gateshead St. James, the
last of which was on May 21st in a 41 to 21 defeat, were
he hit 1 run. The Wehite Rose Cricket Club would later amalagamate
with Bath Lane Cricket Club, and the only other piece of cricket
action that is known from that summer is playing Bath Lane. This was
again verses Gateshead St. James. This on July 9th 1887
and they won by 2 wickets. Allinson hit 2 runs. George Allinson
possibly known drifted out of the sporting scene on Tyneside.
Electoral records show that he conitinued to live in the West of the
city working as a plumber. By 1901 he appears to have got married and
had two children. George libved in Newcastle throughout his life and
it is known that he survived both world wars abd died in the March
Quarter of 1946 aged 86. Further resrach into cricket in the North
East in the late 1880's could bring to light new information.
