David Ashworth the new Liverpool F.C. manager

December 17, 1919
Mr. David Ashworth, secretary and manager of the Stockport County Football Club, has accepted the offer of team’s manager to the Liverpool F.C.

At a meeting of the directors of the Stockport club, held last night, Mr. Ashworth’s resignation was received with profound regret. Mr. Ashworth, who is a well-known and highly-respected figure in the football world, has during his several years’ connection with the County rendered valuable work. Previously Mr. Ashworth was with Oldham Athletic.

Mr. William Coward Briggs, who was on the board of the Liverpool F.C. for fourteen years, has resigned, and last night Mr. Matt McQueen was appointed his successor.

Mr. McQueen, it may be interesting to recall, was one of Liverpool’s oldest professionals, having been signed on for the Anfield club twenty-seven years ago by Mr. John McKenna.

Mr. Ashworth is well known in the football world, and has been with Stockport County for six years. Previous to taking over the position at Edgeley Park, he was for eight years in charge of Oldham Athletic. During his stay there the Athletic rose from the Lancashire Combination to the Second League, and to the First League.

Mr Ashworth will probably take up his new duties next week.
