The transfer of James Miller, Brechin City’s goalkeeper to Liverpool, was not surprising. The Merseyside club have had their eyes on the ex-Glasgow Perthshire man for some weeks now.
The transfer brings to mind the City’s penchant for picking up class keepers. One has only to recall the late Davie Balfour, who went to Dundee; Colin Hampton, Chelsea; and Bob Middleton, now with Sunderland. Miller should do well at Liverpool. He has proved himself a top-notcher since joining up at Glebe Park. The City were expecting the deal. They already have their eyes on a successor.
