Mr. John Orrell ready to accept the offer of £120


September 24, 1891
It is announced that an amicable arrangement will shortly be arrived at on the matter in dispute between the Everton club and the proprietor of part of the ground Mr. John Orrell.

Mr Orrell it is stated, has intimated that he is ready to accept £120 a year rental for his portion of the land. He also stipulates for a guarantee for the payment of the rent, and that their tenants shall be for ten years and that on the termination of the period the club shall be called to remove any erections that they may have upon it.

The proposal will come before the committee of the club and there is little doubt that it will receive their sanction.
