Burnley were left without a manager following the tragic death of Spen Whittaker, and made the decision to wait until the summer to make a new appointment.

For the remainder of the 1909/10 season, following the sad an untimely death of Whittaker, the manager’s duties were taken on by long serving director R. H. Wadge. As planned, during the summer, he reverted back to his position on the board which he retained until 1915 when he left the area for business reasons after 24 years of service with Burnley Football Club.
