Robert Felton transferred to Everton


August 16, 1937
Roy Felton *, a 19 year-old full back whom Liverpool placed on the open transfer list at the end of last season, has followed in the footsteps of many famous Merseyside players and “crossed the park” – joined the rival club.

Felton’s transfer to Everton was completed yesterday, and in thus changing he is following the example of such men as Tosh Johnson, Dick Forshaw, Jack Balmer, etc.

Felton is 5ft. 9½in, and 11st. 2lb.
(Sunderland Daily Echo: August 17, 1937)

* His correct name is Robert Francis Foster Felton.
