The death of Sam Speakman


April 27, 1934
The death took place last evening, after a short illness, of Mr. Sam Speakman, aged about 55, who resided at Elm Street, Huyton Quarry. Mr. Speakman will be remembered by many football enthusiasts on Merseyside as a former Liverpool player, for before the war and for a little while afterwards he played left full back for that club. He was also well known in homing circles, being a prominent and enthusiastic follower of this pastime. His brother, James Speakman, also played for Liverpool at centre forward or on the right wing.

The older generation of Colne football enthusiasts will regret to hear of the death, which took place last week-end at Huyton Quarry, Liverpool, of Sam Speakman, the full-back, who was associated with the Colne club during its heyday twenty-five years ago.

He was 50 years of age.
