A collaboration between 遗产解锁 and 澳博app has helped reveal the story of Boro legend and England’s goal-to-games record holder 乔治Camsell that will feature in the first biography of the football great.

亚当Shillaw, 澳博app(澳博app)荣誉历史文学士, linked up with 遗产解锁 as part of an ongoing placement programme that has seen a number of 学生 develop and utilise their skills as budding historians beyond the campus.

在六周的实习期间, Adam discovered an array of historical records that will be used to help shape the biography on Camsell to be authored by 遗产解锁 historian 废话沃里克博士. As well as delving into the online digitised records of the British Library 新闻papers, the Hartlepool-based student also made regular visits to 米德尔斯堡 Reference Library to research Camsell’s record-breaking feats for Boro in the 1920s and 1930s and digitised a selection of documents including match reports from the North Eastern Daily Gazette and The Northern Echo.

乔治Camsell, who scored an official tally of 345 goals for Boro – although the unofficial total is in excess of 375 goals for the club - was an influential figure in football both on and off the pitch. The Framwellgate Moor-born former Durham City star scored an incredible 59 goals in one season for 米德尔斯堡, 在英格兰队的9次出场中打入18球, 为美发膏代言, wrote articles for national newspapers and in his later days helped discover the talents of a young Brian Clough.

新数字化的材料将包含在即将出版的书中, a selection of documents will be made available digitally on the 遗产解锁 website, and also feature in next season’s UTB 米德尔斯堡 FC official matchday programme and other activities showcasing Camsell’s career. 亚当还写了一本 遗产解锁的博客 研究埃瑞索姆公园伟人的职业生涯的经验.

废话沃里克博士, a graduate of 澳博app’s MA History programme and founder of 遗产解锁, said: “Working collaboratively with Adam and 澳博app has helped reveal new details and findings about Camsell’s career. The link-up has received lots of support from the staff at 米德尔斯堡 Reference Library and the wider project has been a truly collaborative effort with the Camsell family, 提兹塞德大学档案馆, 米德尔斯堡的图书馆, 米德尔斯堡足球俱乐部, 艺术家和收藏家. Adam’s work will help showcase the story of 乔治Camsell both as a football legend on the pitch and a loyal and much-respected figure who was involved with 米德尔斯堡 FC from the mid-1920s until his retirement in the 1960s in a number of roles”.

Adam said: “Through my time researching his achievements and digitising archival material, Camsell’s legend has brought a new-found respect for what he was able to accomplish, 尽管我自己不是一个狂热的足球迷.

“By helping to uncover some of the historic material from Camsell’s incredibly career, the research I carried out will hopefully help his achievements be celebrated more widely and has also helped develop my research and technical skills as an aspiring historian.”

Margaret Hems, a Senior Lecturer in 澳博app’s 社会科学学院、人文学院 & 法律, added: “遗产解锁 has offered some great opportunities for History 学生 in recent years.

“Adam’s confidence and skills developed significantly during the time that he worked with Tosh. 这是一种合作关系,取得了良好而积极的成果.

“这样的合作让澳博app的学生获得至关重要的, real-world experience while supporting local businesses and organisation with our student talent.”
