Liverpool Football Club continue to build up their team strength, and have signed as professional Kevin Baron, the 18-year-old inside forward, who did so well in the trials and in the reserve team on Saturday.
Baron is a native of Preston and would no doubt have played with North End had not Manager Mr. George Kay shown his customary enterprise. Baron had signed amateur forms for Liverpool, for whom he played with marked consistency in the junior side last season.
Baron is the progressive type of forward, sturdily built and exceptionally strong limbed. With three years to grow, Baron may get those extra couple of inches which would be an asset, but he is still a useful 5ft. 8in. or thereabouts.
So Liverpool start off with a signing to celebrate Merseyside’s wonder opening to the Victory Season. Of the seven Football League clubs, no fewer than four won – Everton, Liverpool, Chester, and Wrexham – while South Liverpool and Liverpool Stanley in their revival matches both scored splendid victories.
