Barney Battles transferred to Liverpool


March 28, 1898
A Glasgow correspondent telegraphs that the Liverpool Club have again obtained the services of that fine football, Barney Battles, who a few seasons ago did so much to extricate the Anfield contingent out of their test game difficulties. Several of the Liverpool Club directors have been in Scotland during the last few days, and there is a rumour that other players have been engaged.

Monday, Bernard Battles, right half back of the Dundee team, left for Liverpool to which club he has been transferred. It Is understood that €20 has been paid Dundee, which is very satisfactory, as Battles played for Liverpool in the test matches at the end of last season, and was quite eligible to return to Liverpool without any transfer price being paid.
