Thursday, August 17 – 1933
Following the signing of such famous player as Tommy Lucas of Liverpool and Tommy Yews of West Ham United, Clapton Orient have made another important capture by securing the transfer from Middlesbrough of Arthur Rigby, the England international outside left.
Rigby, who has played for Blackburn Rovers and Everton, represented England against Scotland in 1927 and Wales the following season.
Other players to be signed by Clapton Orient are Billy Fogg (Huddersfield Town), a wing half back, and Patrick McDade (Yeovil), an inside forward. McDade will also act as assistant groundsman.
Martin Davin, an inside forward from Airdrieonians, is excpected to sign forms in time to take part in the Orient’s second practice match at Lea Bridge on Saturday next. Fogg, Rigby, and McDade will also turn out in this game.
