Abe Foxall a Trinity product

October 14, 1899
Abe Foxall’s debut in First Division football last week reminds one that Gainsborough Trinity has been prolific in the production of outside left wingers.

The flying international, Fred Spiksley, went to The Wednesday from the Trinity club, and Alf Spouncer, of Nottingham Forest, who seems more likely than any other player to succeed Spiksley as the left outside of the day, also learned his football with the Lincolnshire club.

When Spouncer was transferred for a big sum, Foxall took his plaved in the Trinity team, and he, like his predecessors, did so well that Mr. Tom Watson, on behalf of Liverpool, was content to pay a high price for him.
