Liverpool’s generosity towards Jack Sheldon

Monday, November 13 – 1922
The generosity of the Liverpool club to their old players is again exemplified by the benefit to Jack Sheldon, whose football career was cut short by his unfortunate accident of a couple of seasons ago. When playing against Derby County Sheldon sustained a fractured leg, and although he had previously taken his accrued share of a benefit the directors of the club have arranged to play a match for him on Wednesday next when a strong Derby County team will visit Anfield. Sheldon will take gross receipts.
