The news that Liverpool have decided to place Elisha Scott, their famous Irish international goalkeeper, in the transfer list means the severance of an association that has lasted for over twenty years. Regarded on Merseyside as one of the greatest of goalkeeper, Scott, like his brother, William Scott, has played consistently for Ireland.
First chosen by his country in 1920 he has been capped on no fewer than 27 occasions in full international matches, and as recently as this season took part in Ireland’s three games in the international tournament.
Scott figures in Liverpool’s League team up to February of this year, but since then has given way to Arthur Riley, the South African.
It is understood that a nominal transfer fee in the neighbourhood of £250 has been placed on Scott, so that he should find little difficulty in joining another club if he so desires.
Other players put on the transfer list by Liverpool include George Talbot, Charles Kneale, Alf Gray, John Deacon, Jack Roberts, Sam McAllister and Gordon Gunson.
