Football Benevolence for old players


July 13, 1922
A pleasant indication of the kindly regard which football clubs generally retain for their old players has just come to light. It appears that during Liverpool’s recent banquet to commemorate the winning of the championship the fact came up the knowledge of the directors that three of the 1906 players were today in rather low circumstances owing to the trade slump.

This matter was, therefore, introduced before the board at their last meeting, and it was unanimously decided to vote the sum of £50 to each of the players who are Alf West, James Bradley, and Sam Raybould.

The directors spoke sympathetically of all three, and trust that the vote will enable them to tide over their present difficulties.
