The death of Harry Bradshaw


December 25, 1899
Death of Harry Bradshaw – Footballers all over the country will regret to hear of the death of Harry Bradshaw. An English international. Bradshaw was one of the most brilliant of the Northern band of players who have made Southern League football so popular during the last few years.

Only on Christmas morning a press representative had a chat with Bradshaw during the match between Tottenham and Portsmouth. He then said that he was almost fit for work again, and had recovered from the injury received in the Cup-tie against Millwall. He complained of feeling unwell on Christmas evening, and while a doctor was being fetched he expired.

Bradshaw was a fine professional cricketer. So far as club football is concerned. Bradshaw is remembered as one of the best forwards Liverpool ever had. Southerners know him as last year’s outside left of Tottenham Hotspur, and the present season’s captain of the Thames Iron Works. He leaves a wife and two young children.
