Bert Freeman: A true sportsman


December 4, 1914
In connection with the Lancashire Cup-tie on Monday next, Burnley v. Rochdale, at Manchester, Bert Freeman approached the management of his club yesterday and asked that William Pickering should be allowed to play in his stead.

Freeman already has two Lancashire Cup medals and as Pickering has played in two rounds of the present competition, and moreover, played with satisfaction, he should wish him to have the chance of the medal.

The authorities were undoubtedly pleased at this action on Freeman’s part, and Pickering will therefore play centre on Monday.
