Harry Barkas transferred to Liverpool


December 30, 1930
Great surprise has been caused in Gateshead football circles by the transfer which was made yesterday of Harry Barkas, the Gateshead centre-forward to Liverpool. The fee is stated to be £1,500. Possessing plenty of dash, Barkas is 5ft. 8 ½in. in height and weighs 11st. 7lb.

The deal has brought about much comment because the Gateshead club had repeatedly stated that none of their players would be allowed to leave them in view of the satisfactory support accorded the club.
