New players for Derby County

August 7, 1895
Both Jimmy Stevenson and John Miller are Clyde men, and played for that famous Scotch team last season. Miller is a forward of exceptional ability, and can play either centre or inside left. He has played both for Sunderland and The Wednesday.

When he left the latter team it was reported that he was “done up,” but such was not the case; the committee paid him off because he was injured whilst playing in a match. Since then he has regularly assisted Clyde, and last season showed splendid form.

Hugh McQueen is one of the player’s brothers, who did so much for Liverpool in their first appearance in the League. Although the Liverpudlians did not do very well they played some few good fine games, and one of their achievements was to beat the County at Derby.

McQueen can play outside right or outside left, and more is expected from him that from either of the other new men.
