Robert Blanthorne transferred to Grimsby


October 25, 1907
Grimsby Town have signed on Robert Blanthorne, centre forward, of Liverpool. He is 23 years of age, and stands 6ft. 1in., and scales 13st. Blanthorne leaves Liverpool to-day, and will play for Grimsby against Blackpool at Blundell Park to-morrow.

Blanthorne came from a junior team in Birkenhead to Liverpool three seasons ago, and has played with the reserves with much success. He is a tall, young player, who is likely to do good for Grimsby.
