Supporters of the Derby County F.C. will be gratified to learn that the negotiations which have been proceeding with Liverpool and Aston Villa regarding the transfers of certain players have been brought to a successful termination.
The result of the negotiations is that the County will be able to command the services next season of Hugh McQueen, one of the best outside “wingers” in the country.
McQueen can play on either wing, and he will distinctly add to the strength of the team.
His only reason for leaving Liverpool is the fact that the latter club are relegated next season to the second division of the League.

** Also part of this deal was that Derby County visited Anfield for a friendly fixture on September 16 – 1895.
