About Herbert Leavey:
“He stands 5ft. 9in. and weighs 11st. The extreme wings appear to suit his style best of play, and it is probably because the club has been lacking capable inside forwards that Leavey has been given so many trials in this position. We should like to see him in first class company for if he could then reproduce the form of the August trials he would be a rare acquisition to the Anfield ranks.”
