Tonight Mr. Edwin Berry (Chairman of the Liverpool Association Football Club) and the Hon. Sec. will apply to the English Football Council for affiliation, and the assurances which have been received from leading members of the Association on the subject leaves no reason to doubt that their request will be granted.
The only serious difficulty seems to be with regard to the title, but the officials of the new club have no desire to come to loggerheads with our local Rugbyites, and intend therefore, to submit a choice of names to the council to-night from which a final selection can be made.
The club, I may say, have decided to join a strong Lancashire League, the clubs associated with which are certain to provide very attractive fixtures next season.
