July 15, 1939
Mr. Tom Bromilow, manager of Crystal Palace F.C., has been appointed manager of Leicester City F.C. He succeeds Mr. Frank Womack, who resigned.

Mr. Bromilow spent all his career as a professional footballer with Liverpool F.C. – one of the most artistic half-backs the club ever had, and he was capped for England on five occasions besides playing in several other representative and inter-League games.

After coaching in Amsterdam for two years he held the manager-ship of Burnley for three years and since then has spent five years with Crystal Palace, who last season just failed to gain promotion.

Mr. Bromilow is expected to take over his duties in about three weeks. One of his first duties will be the appointment of a trainer and assistant trainer. The club has been with a manager and training staff for some weeks

Mr. Bromilow stated: “I leave the Palace on excellent terms, but the prospects at Leicester are much brighter.”
