Sam Raybould transferred to Liverpool


December 29, 1899
The Liverpool Football Club has made a notable capture. Since George Allan’s death the front rank has been very weak, and affairs have become so serious as to endanger the position of the club in the first division of the League. With a view to strengthening the forward line, the directors have obtained the transfer of Sam Raybould, the clever New Brighton Tower centre-forward, who has remarkable speed and is one of the deadliest shots in the Second Division. Raybould is 24 years of age, and powerfully built.
(Derby Mercury: December 29, 1899)
