* Clark, of Liverpool, is reported to have received his quietus.
* Tom Watson may yet have Gillespie and Miller performing on the Liverpool right wing.

* Harry Bradshaw honours himself, his club, and Liverpool football in general in being the chosen one in the “declining city” to represent England in their Inter League match with Ireland.
