Donald Sloan killed in action

Saturday, January 27 – 1917
I deeply regret to announce that another footballer has been killed. Although it must be seven years since Donald Sloan left our city, Mersey football enthusiasts will remember the big fellow. He was first with Everton, and later with Liverpool but he did not get a lasting grip on first team sheets, and finally went to Ireland. His death in action must cause great grief to his wife and large family. Sloan curiously enough was a Scot, but he played for the Irish League.
