Sunday, July 9 – 1939
The death has taken place at the Montgomery County Infirmary, Newtown, of Captain George Latham, D.S.O., in his fifty eight year. He had been ill for about two years.
He had been a Welsh international footballer. After being with the Newtown club he joined Liverpool, playing for them for some years. He later became trainer to Cardiff City. It was during his period at Cardiff that the City won the Welsh and English Cups in the same season.
He joined Chester as trainer for one season, returning to Cardiff City, which club he left about three seasons ago. He then went to live in Newtown, his native place. He, with Mr. Ted Robbins, was in charge of the Welsh football team which toured Canada some five or six years ago.
He helped in raising considerable sums by bringing Cardiff City’s first team play matches in aid of the Montgomery County Infirmary at Newtown.
