Pte. Ron Yeats wanted


June 13, 1961
Yeovil 1421 – hone number of an Army camp in Somerset – will buzz with £30,000 Soccer talk this week.
Subject: Ron Yeats, R.A.S.C. private and giant centre-half of Scottish First Division club Dundee United, who is fancied by Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool.
“I’ve just posted the number to Dundee,” Yeats told me last night.
“They asked for it so that they could put me in the picture quickly.”
But Manchester United with more money than Liverpool, are favourites to sign the Scottish Under-23 star.
