Norwich City’s George Ritchie for Liverpool

October 8, 1915
In our own team we shall take the pleasure of watching George Ritchie, ex-Norwich City, who makes his bow to the Anfield crowd. If he’s anything like as successful as William Molyneux – bird of the same feather – he’ll satisfy. I saw Ritchie in the unique match at Lincoln, Norwich v. Bradford – when the F.A. ordered the game to be played before closed doors, a facial idea because there were some hundreds of newly-discovered football “officials” and at half time the crowd looked like breaking into the ground, and therefore the doors were thrown open – a great chance to benefit charity was lost by the F.A. that day.
