Liverpool paid £75 for Jimmy Ross

August 18, 1894
The transfer of Jimmy Ross, the famous North End right wing, has at last been completed, and on Saturday the Liverpool representative paid to the Preston club the £75 asked for by Ross’s old club. Last week Ross asked Liverpool to release from his engagement. The news was received with regret in Preston, Ross having played with North End for over ten years.
