I have news of further Liverpool footballers joining the colours Robert Macdougall, the sturdy Scot who came to Liverpool as a centre forward, but later was drafted to the extreme wing, has joined the colours – and has sent to trainer William Connell for his football toggery! You can’t suppress football instincts, even though you ban professional football.
Another promising Anfield player, Harry Chambers, has joined the forces. Chambers was not much to the fore last season because he was only signed late on in the season. But take it from me he was built on good lines, and his football Newcastle-way had been taught on the best possible lines; in fact, he was a stylist who could not hope to show up well in the stern Central League matches.
