Harry Lewis transferred to Hull City

October 17, 1923
Harry Lewis, the Liverpool inside-left, transferred on Wednesday to Hull City, was a regular member of the team which won the League championship the season before last. During lat season an illness kept him out of the first team, and so well did Harry Chambers fill the position when the line was re-shuffled, that Lewis did not get his place again when he was restored to health.

He has been playing a consistent game in the Liverpool Reserves, and for some time has been under observation in the interests of Hull City by a keen judge. Moreover, the Tigers’ manager Mr. McCracken, is able to speak from personal knowledge of the qualities of the newcomer to Anlaby Road. The Irishman’s view is that Lewis will fill “a long felt want.”

Lewis is no more than 5ft 6 ½in in height and weights 11st 4lb, but what he lacks in stature is more than compensated for by his foot-craft. Lewis, who is a native of Birkenhead, will make his debut at Anlaby Road on Saturday against Stoke. It is understood that the figure paid for the transfer of the Liverpool man, who will arrive at Hull to-morrow, is round about £800.
