Quartette for Portsmouth


May 9, 1899
The newly established Portsmouth Association Football Club, which has Mr Frank Brettell (late of Tottenham Hotspur) as its manager, has now made rapid strides towards obtaining its team for next season, and there is little doubt that an admission to the Southern League will be obtained.

Players who have signed on are: Tom Wilkie (late of Liverpool), Thomas Cleghorn (Liverpool), Robert Marshall (Liverpool and Heart of Midlothian), Daniel Cunliffe (New Brighton Tower and Liverpool).
