Ernest Blenkinsop might leave Liverpool

September 24, 1937
In consequence of a peculiar clause in his agreement with the Liverpool club this season, Ernest Blenkinsop, the English international back, may soon sever his connection with the club.

A condition of his signing was that if he was not a regular member of the first team at the end of September his engagement would be reconsidered.

Blenkinsop joined Liverpool from Sheffield Wednesday in March, 1934. While with the latter club he played for England 26 times, and also appeared in every match for the English League against the Scottish League from 1929 to 1934.

He has suffered a lot from injuries since he went to Liverpool, and may seek a coaching or managerial post.
