The death of Mr. James Cherry


May 18, 1941
Football officials throughout the North will learn, with regret, of the passing of Mr. James Cherry, the Liverpool company secretary and accountant.

Mr. Cherry died after a short illness, and with his passing many, including myself, lose a valued friend. Jim was known to football directors and officials throughout the country.

A staunch Liverpudlian, he acted for years as steward in the private directors’ room at Anfield. Occasionally he made a trip to away matches and his favourite journeys were to Burnden Park to renew acquaintance with his many Bolton Wanderers friends.
