William Cockburn compared to Alex Raisbeck


January 9, 1926
Liverpool did a good stroke of business when the secured William Cockburn, the former Stockport County centre half, who appears to have made the position his own in the Anfield ranks.

Since getting into the League side he has improved considerably in his general play, and is quite a favourite at Anfield. Big and strong, he reminds one in many respects of Alex Raisbeck.
