July 18, 1939
As anticipated, Tom Bradshaw, the former Liverpool and Scottish international centre-half, duly signed for South Liverpool, negotiations between officials of the club and himself being completed yesterday.
In all likelihood, he will be appointed captain for the forthcoming season. Bradshaw had expressed a desire to return to Merseyside, where he has many connections, and though Dundee were anxious to secure his services he preferred to throw in his lot with the Garston club.
It will be recalled Bradshaw signed for South Liverpool early last season and played in one Lancashire Combination game at Fleetwood. A condition in his agreement, however enabled Third Lanark to obtain his signature almost the day after his solitary appearance with South.
His return to South Liverpool ought to make him an ideal captain and coach to the promising young material on the club’s books.
