Knighton (1884-1959) was assistant manager at Man City and Huddersfield before the first World War. In 1919 he became manager of Arsenal, a post he held until 1925 when the club replaced him with Herbert Chapman. Knighton was involved in one of the first dopnig scandals when he made his players take "little silver pills" before a 1925 FA Cup tie. After leaving the Gunners he went on to manage Bournemouth (1925-28), Birmingham (1928-33), Chelsea (1933-39), and Shrewsbury Town (1945-48).
