John Cox: Blackpool’s new captain

August 9, 1909
The Blackpool directors have elected as captain for the coming season John Cox, the ex-Liverpool international outside left. Cox proposes to proceeds on entirely different lines to those observed last year, as regards the training of players basing his methods on his First Division experience.

Many of the new men have arrived, and take part in the daily practices, including Tom Drain (a Scottish junior international centre half), George Elmore (formerly West Bromwich Albion and Glossop), Doran, of Winchester and Fred Morley, of Reading.
