He was part of the Gunners outfit that won the English Amputee Football Association League Cup in a tournament held at Boldmere St Michaels in Sutton Coldfield.

The Arsenal went unbeaten in all eight of their fixtures to finish top of the table on 20 points and lift a historic first piece of silverware.

In total they drew two and won six, including successes against the likes of Brighton, West Bromwich Albion and Portsmouth, and went through the entire tournament without conceding a goal.

Monk was part of that impregnable defence but still found time to score in a 2-0 win over Partick Thistle.
