William Walker

Inside-forward Willie Walker was a regular in Liverpool’s side in September and October of the 1897/98 season. During his brief stay with the club the transfer system came into operation, and a sum of £100 was put on his head. Through a singular mistake in the list which Liverpool sent to F.A. headquarters his name read “J. Walker” instead of “W. Walker”. It was only a slip, but the wrong initial was made to stand, and the Scotsman was allowed to join his old club, Leith Athletic, for free!

Kop Quote

Reds supporter, Des from London, on Jimmy Harrower when remembering good times on the Kop

"I remember Jimmy Harrower being egged on by the Kop when we were playing Swansea. Their goalkeeper got into a shoulder charging war with Jimmy until the red shirt stepped out of the way and the keeper thundered into the goalpost - almost knocking himself out. Harrower looked innocent and the Kop fell about laughing. Great moments in sport."
