Football clubs originally dealt with team selection by way of committee - with one person, usually a Director or Club Secretary,
assuming greater responsibility than others for team affairs. None of them fully acted like a Manager as we know the role
today but, over time, the role evolved - via "Secretary-Managers" - into the modern Mangerial role as we now understand
it - but at different times at different clubs. Some of the Managers below - particularly those in italics - can be regarded as the
original-style 'Club Secretaries with team responsibilities' rather than having filled the full modern role as we know it today.

Win % = Number of wins/Number of matches x 100%.
Pts % = Number of notional points won/Number of notional points available x 100% (based on 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw).
