Halliday given a free transfer


Saturday, June 30 – 1900
A meeting of the Football League was held at Manchester to-day. Mr. Bentley (president) in the chair. There were also present: Messrs. Sidney, Hart,. Radford, Lewis, and Sutcliffe.
J. F. Halliday, a player on the retain list of Liverpool Club, applied for a free transfer from that club, and as he had signed for Everton the Liverpool club reported them for signing him without permission. After hearing the explanation of both clubs, it was resolved that Liverpool ought not to have placed him upon the retain list last season, and that Liverpool be ordered to give him a free transfer.
