English Athletic Notes

December 31, 1896
* Liverpool are averse to publishing their gates.
* Sheffield United are described as the lightest team in the English League.
* A Lancashire paper says that Robert Neill, the ex-Hibernian, is doing magnificently well for Liverpool, and generally manages to bear of the palm for good play among the halfs.
