Gold medal for Richard Morris

September 13, 1902
Richard Morris, the smart little Liverpool inside left, who boats a Welsh International cap, was one of the first Newtown natives to volunteer his services at the front after the war began, and he went unhurt through one of the most severe stages of that regrettable event.

A few weeks ago Morris’s late co-workers at Newtown forwarded to Mr. Tom Watson, the Liverpool secretary, for presentation to him, a gold centre medal and watch chain as a token of esteem and regret at his leaving their district.
