Wolves are strengthened

July 7, 1894
In spite of the defections from their ranks in Billy Rose, George Swift, George Kinsey, and Bob Edge, Wolverhampton Wanderers appear to have as strong a team as ever for next season.

John Bell, a centre forward from Renton, has signed for them, and two other Scotchmen: John Hamilton, a left full back, from Ayr; and George Fleming, an inside left forward, from East Stirlingshire – have also been secured by the Wolves.

The “Scottish Referee” describes Hamilton as “a sturdy half-back, with any amount of ‘go’ in him,” and remarks that “Wolverhampton Wanderers are not likely to rue their bargain, as John is a stalwart.”
