Notes:

Postcard reads:

W.J. Foulke, the burly goalkeeper of Sheffield United, is remarkably smart between the sticks. He can take shots from all directions, and is very clever at clearing his lines. Probably the biggest and heaviest player in British football. In 1897 he played for England against Wales.
