Tuesday, June 4 – 1918
An excellent letter has been sent to Mr. George Patterson, secretary of the Liverpool club, by Middlehurst, who is in Mesopotamia, wishing the boys luck in the League. Middlehurst, you may remember, was a Prescot youth, very dark, and a player with a punt.
McDougall, the centre forward, and Bobbie P. Parker, of Everton, joined together in sending a field card reporting all well, and I hear that Jimmy Nicholl, who played in the final tie of 1914, and was the scorer of both goals against the Villa at Tottenham in the semi final, has just landed in France.
