Liverpool have paid substantial fees for centre forwards and they have tried to make them, but the position has continued to be more or less a weak spot. Now they have launched out again, paying a big price, one may be sure, for Sam English, of Glasgow Rangers, but he will be a cheap player if he succeeds in pulling the side together.
English should not take long to fit into English football. In some respects his style may be even more suitable to it than to the Scottish game. Although not a big-made player, he is strong, courageous, and fast in a short burst.
The players on the staff are:
Goalkeepers. – Elisha Scott, Arthur Riley, George Talbot (Wallsend).
Backs. – Willie Steel, Ben Dabbs, Jack Tennant (Torquay United), Charles Kneale (Queen’s Ferry).
Half-backs. – Tom Morrison, Tom Bradshaw, Archie Macpherson, Jimmy McDougall, Tom Bush (Shrewsbury Amateurs), Alf Gray (Torquay United), Ted Savage.
Forwards. – Harold Barton, Gordon Hodgson, Dave Wright, Syd Roberts, Alf Hanson, Jack Roberts (Southport), Sam English (Glasgow Rangers), Fred Rogers, Gordon Gunson.
