The Everton Club and their Scotch players

August 11, 1891
Something like a sensation will be caused in English professional circles, and especially in Liverpool, by the fact that Dan Doyle and Alex Brady, two of the most prominent Scotch players in England, have committed themselves to the Celtic last night by playing for that club in a match against Cowlairs.

Alex Brady, Everton F.C. (Glasgow Evening Post: April 9, 1892):

The Everton officials were cognisant that endeavours had been made in Scotland to induce these players to remain at home; but a recent visit of one of their committee seemed to put matters right in playing for Celtic, both Doyle and Brady are debarred from assisting Everton in English Cup Ties.
