Barney Battles to replace Archie Goldie?


April 24, 1897
Liverpool have re-engaged, or will probably re-engage, all their old players (League) except Archie Goldie, George Allan, and Frank Becton, the last two mentioning leaving the Anfieldranks. Gillespie will no doubt be seen here next season, but they will require a right full back in place of Goldie. Barney Battles is spoken of to supply the latter’s position.
