I regret to announce the death of Mr. Alex Nisbet, which took place yesterday morning. Among old footballers Mr. Nisbet will be remembered as the ex-secretary of the Everton Football Club. He was one of those who met at Birmingham to form the Football League, his name being engraved on the League Cup as one of the founders of the League.

He was well-known in bowling circles, being a generous prize-giver; and he also took a keen interest in Freemasonry, not only in the “Craft,” but also in the higher degree. Deceased was vaccination officer under the West Derby Board of Guardians, and was held in high esteem by his fellow workers. He had been ailing for about four months. His genial personality will be greatly missed by a very large circle of friends.
