To the editor of the Evening Express.
SIR, – It has been constantly brought before my notice that the Press state that I am about to retire from football. This is not true. Why should I retire? I consider I have some good football left in me. This will probably surprise my Everton and Liverpool friends. If I retire it will be because the Everton directorate have placed such a large transfer fee on me so that I cannot obtain a decent situation. I have served the Liverpool public faithfully and honourably during my stay at Everton, and think it unfair to be treated thus. – Yours, &c.
Edgar Chadwick; 10, Fawcett-street, Blackburn, May 17.

The full force of the gale which last week caused such widespread havoc throughout the country, was felt in Nottingham, and there is cause for satisfaction that few cases of serious damage were reported in the district. The cief sufferers by the violence of the wind were the Forest Football Club, the whole of whose stand, on what is known as the “sixpenny side,” was blown down and totally wrecked. Some idea of the damage caused to the structure may be gathered from the illustration, which has been prepared from a photograph.
