£22,000 refused for mystery player


November 17, 1952
Bristol Rovers have turned down an offer of over £22,000 made by Liverpool for the transfer of one of their forwards. Disclosing this yesterday, Mr. Bert Tann, Rovers’ manager, said that in fairness to the player he would not divulge his name.

“We are determined more than ever that none of our lads shall leave,” commented Mr. Tann. “We want them all in our great effort to reach the Second Division.”

Altogether the Rovers have rejected offers totalling more than £100,000 for players during the past fortnight.
