Bert Slater transferred to Dundee


July 3, 1962
Dundee manager Bob Shankly signed Liverpool’s Scottish goalkeeper Bert Slater for the second time yesterday after final negotiations with brother Bill, who manages the Anfield club.

Bert, a former Under-23 cap was previously signed by Bob Shankly as Falkirk’s keeper when Bob was the manager of the Brockville club in 1953. Slater played a big part in Liverpool’s promotion run last season and was keen to return to Scotland.

His signing brings Dundee’s goalkeeping strength to three. He joins Pat Liney and Alistair Donaldson.
