Liverpool’s new forward
After scouring the country for several weeks in their quest for talent, Liverpool have signed George Pither, the outside left of Methyr Town. Pither, a native of Hounslow, commenced his football career with Isleworth Town in the S.W. Middlesex League. His next club was Brentford, for whom he played a season as an amateur and then signed professional forms.

Coming under the notice of Millwall he played for this club in the season 1922-3-4, and took part in 19 Third Division games. Bristol Rovers was his next move, and after a season with them he went to Torquay United. The present campaign found him in the ranks of Merthyr Town, for whom he had scored seven goals from outside left – a feat that arrested the attention of the Anfield management.

Pither is the third player Liverpool have recently recruited from Third Division football.
