Portsmouth recruiting in Liverpool


Wednesday, May 3 – 1899
Mr. Frank Brettell, formerly a well-known figure in Liverpool football circles, has been busily engaged in this city during the last few days seeking recruits for the Portsmouth club, of which he was recently appointed the secretary.

We understand that he has secured Harry Stringfellow, Ed Turner, and Teddy Hughes, of Everton, and Jack Kirwan, another Evertonian, has thrown in his allegiance with Tottenham Hotspur. Harry Bradshaw, the ex-Liverpudlian, has left the latter club to join the Thames Ironworks to which the famous Johnny Holt has also just migrated.
