Three English League players accompanied Mr. George Moorhouse, the manager of the New York Giants “Soccer” team, on the White Star liner Celtic, which left Liverpool for New York on Saturday. The players are: D. McMullan, the Irish International half back of Liverpool F.C., C.E. Glover, who has played for Everton, Southport, New Brighton and Wigan Borough, and J.C. Harrington, formerly with Liverpool, Luton Town, and Millwall. They have all signed agreement to play for the New York Giants next season.
America is still prepared to pay large sums for really first-class English footballers. It is stated that a bid was made for “Dixie” Dean, the Everton and England International centre forward, the terms offered being £25 a week. Dean, however, preferred to remain in England, and the overtures were not successful.
