Woolwich Arsenal obtain Manor Ground after a rent dispute with Invicta Ground
After George Pike Weaver (the owner of the Invicta Ground) increases rent from £160/year to £400/year to reflect the club's growing support and imminent election into the Football League, Woolwich Arsenal makes a historic decision and purchases the adjacent Manor Ground for £4,000 (the equivalent of £5m today), moving back to the home field used between 1888-1890. The club improves the ground, erecting a single main stand and banks of terracing to increase the capacity from 1,000 to 10,000 in preparation for the Second Division.
