On Monday Alfred Roe, left half, was signed from Liverpool, with whom he has played for three seasons. Hailing from Sheffield, he was at Mexborough, the birthplace of George Waterfield, before he went to Liverpool as an amateur. He signed professional forms with the Merseyside club in the 1930-31 season.
Last season he captained the Central League side. Although notes as a left half, he plays in any half back position. Mr. Tom Bromilow has personal knowledge of Roe’s playing abilities, for when the Burnley manager was coaching the Liverpool “A” team Roe played at centre-half alongside him. He regards him as a promising player.
Like Wallace, Roe is a cricketer, and this season has been seeking a professional engagement.
