  • Player profile

    Middlesbrough-born Donnelly is remembered mainly for scoring Fosse's first goal in the First Division, in a 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday to start the 1908-09 campaign.

    He contributed to Fosse's only promotion campaign from both the right wing and as a striker and made his debut in September 1907 against Leeds United at home.

    Donnelly finished as the club's top-scorer in their first season in the First Division with ten goals and then turned provider in the second season for Fred Shinton's record-goal haul. Donnelly was one of 573 professional players in England to receive the maximum wage of £4 per week in that season.

    In total he netted 26 league goals in 74 league starts for the club and added one goal from two FA Cup appearances before moving on to finish his professional career with Darlington.
