Position: Goalkeeper

His first senior appearance was not in the comforts of north London, however, but as a substitute in the unfamiliar surroundings of Reykjavik in Iceland for a tour in 1969. 

Webster did make his competitive debut in a 3-2 defeat at Tottenham in September that year, and it was the first of six starts for the Yorkshire-born keeper. 

He eventually made a loan move to Fulham permanent for £10,000 in June 1970, featuring for the final time in an Arsenal shirt in a League Cup defeat to Everton. 

Webster went on to play for Southend United and Cambridge United and eventually became a coach and then assistant manager with the latter in 1986.
