We hear and see ….


Saturday, August 11 – 1888
That no fewer than six of the last season’s team of the Edinburgh Hibernians have deserted to join the new Glasgow combination, the Celtic, heralded by some as the prospective winners of the Scottish Cup a few months hence; that several promising new players appeared in the Dumbarton team on Saturday; that several more Scotchmen have “migrated” to the Newcastle district; that the composition of the Queen’s Park team for the ensuing season is unsettled, and several players from other clubs are expected to be included.
(Lancashire Evening Post, 11-08-1888)
