George Bowen for Tom Robertson


September 14, 1901
Tom Robertson, Liverpool’s outside right, who was dropped on Saturday week in favour of George Bowen, has not missed a League match for well nigh three years. Both last season and the previous one this Hearts’ man went right through the campaign, whilst in the season 1898-99 he missed but a couple of engagements. This is a very fine record for any footballer to possess, particularly a forward.
(Sunderland Daily Echo: September 28, 1901)
