Bill Jones: Liverpool F.C.’s utility man


April 3, 1945
Another star of yesterday’s Anfield game was Bill Jones, who is to Liverpool what Jackson is to Everton as utility man, though his war-time appearances have not been many. Jones is on week’s leave from the Continent, having been through all the recent fighting in Holland and Germany, and yesterday was the first time he had kicked a ball for eight weeks.

Since making his debut for Liverpool’s first team four years ago he has played in only twelve games, occupying five different positions. A native of Whalley Bridge, near Glossop. Jones was recommended to Liverpool when sixteen years of age, and was signed on the strength of one trial game. He is a fine cricketer well as most promising footballer.
