FootnoteThe Independent (Footscray) May 29 1915, reported;
"Andrews of Carlton has obtained his clearance to Footscray. In granting the clearance the committee and captain of the Carlton club wished him the best of good luck and expressed the wish that he would have a successful time with his new club. It was a fine spirit to show a player whom who they could not place in the present team, and at the same time would not debar him from playing with another team.
Carlton's loss of a good club man has been Footscray's gain."
Surname in this report is spelt Andrews, but the Footscray team line up for next week's match says Andrew.
