James McGaffrey transferred to Liverpool

October 12, 1912
Mr. Tom Watson, of Liverpool F.C., has signed James McGaffrey, the inside right of Annabank. He is a cousin of the old Sunderland player James Miller, and is described as being a youth of rare ability.

He stands 5 feet 9 inches, and weighs 11st. 7lbs.

Liverpool financially were never better off than now, but the club say they will not pay huge prices, and point to cheap purchases in Jimmy Stewart, John MacDonald, Sam Hardy, Kenneth Campbell, Robert Pursell, Ephraim Longworth, and Harry Lowe as evidence of economy and effect.
(Dundee Courier: October 12, 1912)
