Going home

Saturday, December 2 – 1939
David Murray, former Everton footballer and one of the South Africans who went to Goodison Park, is back in the city. Dave has decided to go back to South Africa, and is now waiting to sail. During recent years Dave has been in Jersey coaching, and it was he who sent young Pat Hurel over to England to try his luck with Everton.  Hurel showed distinct promise and after good service with Everton was allowed to join Warney Cresswell at Northampton.  He became a regular member of the Town first team. Dave renewed an old friendship with Arthur Riley, the Liverpool goalkeeper.
