Middlesbrough want their money back

June 5, 1903
An interesting point was raised at the annual meeting of the Middlesbrough Club, held Friday night. Councillor Mattison drew attention to the heavy fee paid for the transfer for Andy McGuigan, who broke down in his first match after being transferred from Liverpool, and inquired if Liverpool had been asked to refund the money.

The Chairman replied that Liverpool were asked, but refused. They produced a doctor’s certificate, showing that he was sound. Councillor Mattison thought it was just one of those cases where an appeal should be made to the League, or taken into the law courts.
