Arnold Dargie in the Army


December 29, 1915
Arnold Dargie was badly wanted by Liverpool F.C. some two or three years ago. This young Welsh player specialises in goal-scoring heights, and he has attained some tall objects. Our old friend and enthusiast, Mr. J.O. Williams, send me word of Dargie. This is what Dargie has been doing: –

“The Welsh R.G.A. (Carnarvon), who have in their ranks prominent North Wales players, including two amateur internationals – Stallard, goalkeeper, and Lieutenant Dargie – visited the Northampton County ground with an unbeaten record extending over two seasons. They were accompanied by quite a big band of comrades from Bedford, where they are stationed. The soldiers had the satisfaction of seeing the Welsh win an interesting game by 3 goals 1, all the winning goals being scored by Lieutenant Dargie.”

Note, I have Arnold Dargie in my records as LFC player, signed from Bangor in February 1911. He played 1910/11 and 1911/12 season before he left the club. He died during World War 1.
