John “Sailor” Hunter and Tom Robertson transferred to Hearts

May 19, 1902
There will be general satisfaction on the part of the Heart of Midlothian followers on the transfer of John “Sailor” Hunter and Tom J. Robertson from Liverpool.

Hunter, on Saturday’s form, is a catch, and if Robertson takes care of himself the left wing should be stronger than it has been since John Walker and Robertson were transferred to Liverpool.

It is said that the transfers worked out at half as much again as the Hearts got from Middlesbrough for John Hogg, the latter sum being £200. The Hearts only need a fresh back now.
