Matt McQueen succeeds David Ashworth as Liverpool F.C. manager

February 13, 1923
At a meeting on Tuesday night the directors of the Liverpool Football Club appointed Mr. Matt McQueen team’s manager in succession to Mr. David Ashworth, who recently took up a similar position with Oldham Athletic.

The appointment of Mr. McQueen should be a popular one at Anfield, for he has always been in close touch with the Merseyside club. Being a Scotsman, Mr. McQueen  was one of the first professional players to be signed on by Liverpool, and later he served on the board of directors. In addition, he was for some time a Football League referee, so that his experience in the branches of the sport has been considerable.
