Everton have secured a new player from St. Helens Town in the person of Leo Woods, who has done some good work with the Lancashire Combination team.
Wood is a local youth, and has played with several clubs in the district including, Garston Church, Fairfield, Old boys and Garston Gas Works, while playing for the latter club, he was given a trial with Liverpool in Combination match with Blackburn Rovers reserves. He performed very creditably, scoring the only goal for his side.
However, being handicapped by so many players, the Liverpool Club could not give him the extended trial he was worthy off. Before signing a professional form from St. Helens, he was well known in amateur sports, and has won numerous prizes on the track. An outside left for St. Helens.
