January 26, 1928
Bob Clark, one of the most popular players who has ever worn Newcastle United colours, was yesterday transferred to Liverpool for a substantial fee. Clark is not “cup-tied,” and, therefore, is available for Liverpool’s game with Cardiff City at Ninian Park to-morrow.
Clark joined Newcastle from Newburn five years ago. Unable to command a regular place, Clark nevertheless was regarded as the most useful reserve forward on the books.
In the Newcastle Reserve side he has been their most consistent player over a long period, and his transfer emanates from Wednesday’s North-Eastern League Challenge Cup game at St. James’ Park.
