Liverpool scouting for a goalkeeper


March 26, 1939
Quite a Liverpool invasion at the semi-finals. The Anfield club was represented from headquarters at both Ibrox and Tynecastle. They didn’t advise me as to the attraction. But I’ve a fairly good idea for all that.

Liverpool have been searching for a goalkeeper of real class for practically a whole season. Well, then, where better than Easter Road, where Jock Brown and Jimmy Kerr were performing? Or Ibrox, where Johnstone and Murray were holding the forts.

I believe Brown is slightly favourite with manager George Kay. But then Brown has been favourite with George Jobey, of Derby County, and others, for a good long time – and Brown is still a Clyde player. But one of these days, if the fee is big enough, Clyde may say the transfer word.
