The death has occurred in Belfast Royal Hospital of Mr. Hugh Gordon, the famous Irish Internationalist and former Everton full back, one of two brothers who, through their connection with Linfield Club did remarkable pioneer work on behalf of Irish football.

The deceased had played in all three internationals. He was a brother of Johnny Gordon, secretary of the Irish Football League, who attended Saturday’s secretarial conference in Glasgow.
