Letter to the Football League


Tuesday, September 12 – 1916
The Football League met yesterday at Manchester. Communications from the players of Everton and Liverpool on the question of payment of players’ wages were read. They were accompanied by a covering letter form each club, suggesting that the matter should be brought before the Football Association for consideration. The committee decided that, as the restriction against the payments were imposed by the Football Association League, they could not interfere, as the clubs had made no general attempt for the withdrawal of such restrictions. They were not prepared to make any recommendation in the matter. This does not prevent the clubs and players, however, from approaching the Football Association.
