Liverpool has engaged a promising player in Abel Hughes, of the Rhos Club, and if build goes for anything, he should be a good man. He has the advantage too, of youth, and stand 5ft 11lb height with a rare turn of speed and only 22 years old of age, should be in the right place in a football team. He played for Wales last season as half back, but his proper place is full back, and this is the position he will fit in the Liverpool team.
