Scounting for Pompey

Saturday, April 1 – 1922
Bert Leavey (Herbert Leavey), who surprised his many friends at Bradford and Barnsley last season by giving up the player-managership of the Boscombe club to help Portsmouth for a short period, has returned to his former duties, and is acting in the capacity of scout and agent for the Portsmouth club. Bert is an astute judge of a young player, and he it was who discovered and brought out Percy Cherrett, the young centre forward who is doing so well with Pompey this season.
