Bob, in the Manchester v Bootle programme, there is is an H.Bell playing for Bootle. Do you know if this is the Harold Bell who played for Tranmere for about 12 years.

Do you remember William Bill Cook lived in Stafford Dr Bootle played for Everton

William Cook (20 January 1909 – 11 December 1992) was a Northern Irish professional football player and manager. He was capped 15 times for Ireland.[2]

Cook began his football career in Scotland with Junior side Port Glasgow Athletic Juniors.[3] He signed for Celtic in February 1930, and made his debut within the week in a 4–0 win over Ayr United. He established himself in the side, and at the end of the following season won a Scottish Cup medal when Celtic defeated Motherwell in the final after a replay.[3][4] Cook usually played at right-back, but could also play as a left-back when the need arose.[3]

In December 1932, Cook was transferred to Everton for £3,000.[3] It was a surprise move at the time and he is considered one of the first high-profile players to leave Celtic mid season for another club. Cook stated that the reasons for the move were financial.[3] He enjoyed immediate success at Goodison Park, helping Everton win the FA Cup with a 3–0 win over Manchester City at Wembley.[3] On his death in December 1992, almost 60 years later, he was the last surviving player from that team.[5] A League championship win followed in 1939, but the outbreak of World War II prevented Everton from building further on this success.[3] In his time at Everton, Cook made 250 appearances and scored six goals.[5]

During the war years, Cook guested for several clubs throughout Britain. Following the end of the war, he had brief spells at Wrexham and Ellesmere Port Town before joining Rhyl as player-manager in October 1946.[3]

Cook became coach at Norwegian club SK Brann in 1947, before returning to the UK to briefly coach Sunderland. The next few years saw Cook travelling extensively; rejoining SK Brann for a couple of years, moving to South America to coach the Peru national side, before returning home in 1954 as manager of Portadown. Then after a spell as Youth team manager of Northern Ireland he went abroad again, spending a year as manager of the Iraq national side. He returned to the UK again in 1956, with spells as manager at Wigan and Crewe before becoming trainer-coach at Norwich in 1958.[

Robert C. "Bunny" Bell (10 April 1911 – 25 December 1988) was a footballer who played for Carlton, Tranmere Rovers and Everton.[1][2]

On Boxing Day 1935, he scored nine times in Tranmere's 13–4 victory over Oldham Athletic, at that time an English record. He might have made it 10, but missed a penalty.[3] He scored 57 goals for Tranmere during the 1933–34 season, and ended his Tranmere career with 104 goals in 114 games. Bell then signed for Everton,[4] but the outbreak of World War II effectively ended his career.[5]

Hi Bob, the player you show with Dixie Dean is R. Bell, I am talking about H. Bell in the Bootle team v Man Utd.
Harold Bell played for Tranmere from 1939 to 1960 and still holds the football league record for the most consecutive matches played. He played the first game after the war 1946 and never missed a game until 1955.

I’m afraid I don’t remember Billy Cooke as I was not born until 1940.

Cheers
Bill

Bill Harold Bell



Harold Bell (22 November 1924 – 17 July 1994)[2] was an English footballer who holds the record for the most consecutive appearances for a British football team.[3][4]
Bell was picked for Tranmere Rovers in the first game after World War II in the 1946–47 season and did not miss a match until he was dropped on 30 August 1955, a total of 375 consecutive league matches for the team in Football League Third Division North.[4] He also played in 26 FA Cup matches, 22 Liverpool Senior Cup and 10 Cheshire Bowl games, making a grand total of 459 appearances.[5] In total he made 633 appearances, finally leaving the club for Holyhead Town in 1959.[

Thanks Bob, but what I was querying was whether the H. Bell in the Bootle team of 1938 is the Harold Bell who signed for Tranmere in 1939.

Liverpool-Senior-Cup

2. The Liverpool County Football Association Senior Cup known as the Liverpool Senior Cup, is a football knockout tournament involving teams from the city of Liverpool and surrounding areas. It is the County Cup competition of the Liverpool County Football Association and involves non-league clubs as well as the three professional teams in Merseyside: Everton and Tranmere Rovers. However, while non-league clubs field their first team in the competition, the professional clubs field their reserve teams; the first Liverpool Senior Cup was played for in 1882–83, with Bootle becoming the inaugural winners, the competition has taken place most seasons since then. The final of the 1892–1893 competition was the occasion of the first Merseyside derby- Liverpool won the game 1–0; the Cup was suspended during most of the First World War, but continued during the Second World War in the form of exhibition matches between Liverpool and Everton wartime teams. Prescot Cables defeated Southport 2–0 in the 2016–17 final at Volair Park, with Andy Scarisbrick scoring the winner in the second half.
3. The game received widespread attention from national news outlets when fans celebrating Joe Herbert's opening goal caused a section of the fence to collapse. 1st Round Byes – Everton, Tranmere Rovers, Southport Did Not Enter

Happy Christmas to you Bob, and I hope you have the best New Year. I never miss looking in on the JOC thread, and I hope you don't mind my copying some of your photos, I send them to my nephew. It must be harder for you without Dan, Joe and now Bobhammo's input, although I hope Bob will be well soon. You do a great job, it's much appreciated.
