Description

St Albans born centre forward Bertie Menlove joined Aston Villa from junior club Barnet Alston, whom he’d joined prior to the First World War, in 1919 but failed to make an appearance for Villa’s first team while on their books, joining newly elected Football League club Crystal Palace in the summer of 1920. He made his Football League debut in their third match in a 3-0 victory at home to Merthyr Town and scored 5 times in 21 League games in their inaugural League season, which saw them win the Third Division (South) Championship. His 9 Second Division goals in 1921-22 brought him to the attention of First Division Sheffield United, who signed him in March 1922, with his debut coming immediately against Cardiff City and his first Blades goal coming in a 1-0 victory against Everton the following month.

He was a regular scorer for Sheffield United but wasn’t selected for the FA Cup Final team of 1925 which won the FA Cup with a 1-0 victory over Cardiff City, but he bagged a hat-trick in October 1925 in a 4-1 victory over Birmingham at Bramall Lane, in what would prove his last season playing for Sheffield United. In 1926 he joined non league Boston Town after 42 goals in 77 Blades appearances, moving to Aldershot a year later, and on to Bangor City in 1928, before making a single appearance for Clapton Orient in an FA Cup tie in November 1929. The following year he returned to non league football with Connah’s Quay & Shotton, joining Irish League Coleraine in 1931, before returning to England with Ashford Town in 1932.
