Alex Thomson, the young centre forward of East Stirlingshire is expected to sign for Liverpool F.C. Mr. Tom Watson, the secretary of that club, is making a special journey to Scotland to see Thomson, who wishes to follow up his profession in Liverpool, and if that point is satisfactorily arranged, as anticipated, he will go to the Merseyside club.
