Albert Arthur (Bert) Gosnell (10 February 1880 – 6 January 1972) was a English international footballer who played in two FA Cup finals for Newcastle United in the early 20th century and later managed Norwich City.


Playing career

Gosnell played for The Albion (Colchester), Colchester Town, New Brompton and Chatham before joining Newcastle United in 1904, the outside left made 106 appearances and scored 15 goals between 1904 and 1910, which includes making appearances in the 1905 FA Cup Final and 1906 FA Cup Final where he collected runner's up medals on both occasions. After leaving St James' Park, Gosnell signed for Tottenham Hotspur where he featured in seven matches in all competitions.[1] After Spurs he went on to play at Darlington.[2]

In the summer of 1912 he signed with Port Vale, who at the time were plying their trade in the Central League. He appeared fairly regularly over the course of the 1912-13 season, though on 9 November 1912, in a match at Liverpool Reserves he was mistakenly sent off for kicking an opponent during the 1-0 defeat. He was a member of the side that took home the Birmingham Senior Cup in 1913, but left the club in the summer of that year.[3]

International career

Gosnell earned an England cap on 17 February 1906, in a 5-0 win over Ireland.[4]

Management career

Gosnell was Norwich City's seventh manager, and was in charge for 223 matches between 1921 and 1926. His sides won 59, lost 95 and drew 79 games.

After this spell he became the coach of Colchester Town.
