About Tom Fairfoull:
“A dour Scot from West Calder, and Liverpool’s most consistent half this season. His first season at Anfield, having been obtained from Third Lanark. Was regarded as one of the best halves in Scotland, and has fully borne out his reputation. Is a great believer in passing back to his goalkeeper in order to relieve the defence.”
