Liverpool v Barrow 2-0 (Friendly: September 8, 1892)

September 8, 1892
Quick note: “The pace throughout was very fast, and Duncan McLean did a lot of good work. He is improving very much, both in safe tackling and speed. Jock Smith’s play pleased me very much also, it was a decided advance on the first match of the season.”
