18th October

1924
Woking 0 v Summerstown 0 FA Cup - Abandoned 23 minutes. A most tragic incident brought about an abrupt end to the match. Just as a throw in was being taken on the stand side, the referee Sergeant G.W Blake of the Royal Engineers, Aldershot, standing about 20 yards from the goal in the middle of the field, was seen to suddenly reel and fall. Ambulance men and players went to his aid, but all efforts to revive him proved useless. A doctor who arrived shortly afterwards pronounced the unfortunate Sgt. Blake dead. This was even more tragic as he had appeared fit and well when he cheerily waved to his wife and little adopted daughter in the crowd just before he stepped on to the pitch. As his body was removed on a stretcher, Mr A.H Bell (President) announced to the crowd that: “In such unfortunate circumstances they would fully understand that the match would have to be abandoned�. The crowd respectfully left Kingfield in total silence.
