May 7, 1914
The Liverpool club have made an excellent capture by securing Charles Hafekost, of Gillingham.
Hafekost is a native of Sunderland, and before joining Gillingham played with Sunderland Rovers. He has been a prolific scorer for the Southern League team during the past two years, and is highly recommended by Sam Gilligan, the ex-Liver, who is now player-manager to the Kent club.
Hafekost is twenty-two years of age, stands 5ft. 10½in., and scales 12st.; plays inside left or centre forward, but prefers the latter position. He is known in Liverpool, as he played a good game for Gillingham, at Anfield, in the second round Cup-tie. After his display of that day I wrote of him that he was an earnest player, and the most likely youngster of the team.
