Three 16-year-old players from the Southport League who have scored 100 goals between them since the start of last season are now on Everton’s books. Some time ago the Goodison Club signed Ronald Dandy inside-left, and Arthur Rockcliffe, centre half from Fleetwood Heskeith Juniors, a side which has carried all before them since the start of last and scored 227 goals against 40 in that time.
Now Everton have signed Eddie Wainwright, clever inside-right or right-half from the same team. Last season Wainwright obtained 30 goals for the team from inside-right and Dandy 25 from the inside-left position. Dandy so far has 19 goals from 13 matches this term and while Wainwright has been converted into a wing half he has kept up his scoring feats. Rockliffe is the side’s penalty expert and all three, who were outstanding schoolboys a couple of years ago, promise to make first rate players with ordinary luck.
