Notes:
Born William Fiske, but known as Tommy, he signed from Blackpool for a large fee in the summer of 1914. However his arrival date of August 1st coincided with his being called up to the army (along with Robert Firth and Jack Bell) at the start of World War 1.
He made just 5 appearances for Forest, presumably while on leave during Christmas and New Year of 1914/15, and was subsequently killed in action on May 27th 1918 during the Battle of Aisne.

His obituary included these lines:
With his platoon surrounded, (Fiske) rolled up his shirt sleeves and went over the top. No identifiable part of the goalkeeper's body has ever been found
