Height and weight of the Liverpool players 1906-7


August 18, 1906
With such a limited infusion of new blood up Anfield way, my Liverpool strain is of necessity brief.

Percy Saul, the defender from far away Plymouth Argyle, can act with almost equal facility on either wing. He is exactly the height of the loyal and well-tried sub-Captain, Billy Dunlop – viz. 5ft. 9 ½in., and a trifle of four pounds heavier, turning the bean at the Tower grounds at 12st. 8lbs.

William Macpherson, the Paisley St. Mirren recruit, is of goodly length – 5ft 10in., and weights 11st. 5ln., but Jack Lipsham, the young Chester forward is of smaller type – 5ft. 7in. and 10st. 7lbs.

The readers can see for themselves from a glance at the following the full official returns of the men as taken at the Tower grounds and kindly supplied me by the Secretary, Mr. Tom Watson: –
