A railway engineer for Liverpool


Monday, August 7 – 1933
Leslie Dewar, a young South African footballer, who had been signed on by Liverpool, arrived at Southampton to-day from the Cape, in the liner Kenilworth Castle, and was met by Mr. George Patterson, secretary of Liverpool F.C.

Dewar, who can play right or left back, is in the early twenties’. When he was 17 he played for Rhodesia against a FA XI, captained by Jimmy Seed. He has never been to England before.

A railway engineer by profession, Dewar is an all-round sportsman. He is a scratch golfer, a good batsman and has played representative water polo for Rhodesia. Of Scottish descent, he was born in the Transvaal.
