Last evening Manchester United transferred their clever outside right, Jack Sheldon, to Liverpool, and though no announcement was made with respect to the amount of the fee, it probably reached four figures.
It has been an unfortunate circumstance for this player that he has had such a rival in the United team as William Meredith, for there is no getting away from the fact that he is quite up to the League standard. Though on the small side – he stands 5ft. 6in. and weighs 10st. – he deserves to rank as one of the best outside rights in the country, and in him Liverpool have undoubtedly received a useful addition to their playing strength.
Last season Sheldon, who is a native of Clay Cross, played in sixteen League matches for the United, these being the occasions when Meredith was unable to turn out. The Welshman thus took part in twenty two of these matches.
