Liverpool are alive to the future, and will have a third South African player on their books in the person of Jimmy Gray, who is of Scottish birth, and left for South Africa some five years ago.
He came into prominence with the East Rand Proprietary Mines club, and has played in front of Arthur Riley in both full-back positions. He represented Transvaal in the Currie Cup this year, and has played in inter-district representatives games.
Latterly he joined Benoni F.C., the club from which Gordon Hodgson was secured, and on the recommendation of these players Gray left South Africa and is expected to arrive to-day at Southampton where Mr. George Patterson is in readiness with the necessary papers.
Gray, an engineer by trade, is 23 years of age, standing ft. 10in., weighing 11 ½st.
