The funeral of John Carlin


July 2, 1935
John Carlin, who played for Liverpool F.C. thirty years ago, and passed away on Friday last, is to be buried at Allerton Cemetery to-morrow (Wednesday) at 3:30 p.m. Carlin was with Liverpool for four and a half-seasons, finishing in 1906. He was also with Barnsley and Preston North End, where he sustained a couple of broken ribs, which ended his football career.

An all-round athlete, he won many prizes with the Sefton Harriers, and was one of the best bowlers in the Eton club, where he had a long association with the late Mr. Thomas Crompton – both fine sportsmen.
