Entrances and exits at Anfield


Tuesday, September 16 – 1890
Sir, I quite agree with a writer when he says- ‘’The entrances and exits at Anfield are a disgrace.” I had practical experience of this on Saturday last. I got to the ground at 3-30, and found a crowd of about 150 men swarming around the Anfield road entrance. I immediately worked myself into the crush, and was for twenty minutes struggling with all my strength to save my ribs from being crushed in. it was something cruel, and when at last I was carried through the narrow doors I was nearly fainting, and had to sit down to get my wind. Surely a club like Everton, with its £200 gates, can afford a proper entrance. Let them take the cue from North End’s splendid entrance, and so enable their supporters to enjoy the manly game without being injured for life-yours etc, sept 15 1890. W.D.
