Many supporters of the Darwen Football Club will regret to that William McOwen, the former goalkeeper, has severed his connection with the club. Some time ago the committee engaged Chalmers, the Middlesbrough goalkeeper, and it was thought that the club would retain the services of the little champions from Blackburn.
McOwen has, however, obtained his release from the club in the “Salmon Town”, and signed for the Liverpool club. The popular custodian was formally transferred by the Darwen committee on Monday last.
