The death of Alf West

June 27, 1944
Mr. Alfred West, who died at Garfield-road, Radford, yesterday, was a full back for the Notts County, Liverpool and Barnsley clubs. Prior to joining the Meadow-lane staff during the summer of 1911, when he was 28, this Nottingham born player had been associated for six seasons with Liverpool, and was an accomplished full back, who had also seen service with Ilkeston and Barnsley.

In his first two seasons with the County he was ever-present (38 League games), holding his place on merit, and proving a great favourite, converting four penalties. He missed only two of the 38 League games in 1913-14, and was still with the County on the outbreak of the 1914-18 war. He earned a good reputation as a golfer.
