Barney Battles transferred to Kilmarnock


June 11, 1904
Several Clubs wanted Barney Battles, the noted back. Kilmarnock have been successful, he having signed for the Ayrshire team on Saturday night. Battles has had a rather interesting career since, at the age of 17, he left Bathgate for the Heart of Midlothian in 1894. He has since that year seen service with Dundee, Liverpool, ad Celtic, and is a very able player and a valiant defender of the goal. He is still fresh, virile, and capable.
