League trophy presented and John Cox wants to leave

 June 4, 1901
A meeting of the Football League was held at Liverpool yesterday, Mr Bentley presiding. – John Cox, of Liverpool, applied for his transfer, his principal claim being “that he wanted a change”; but, as Liverpool had offered him the maximum wage, his application was refused. The committee afterwards dined with the Liverpool Club, when the League Cup was presented.
