September 10, 1892
Quick note: “A grand day, a splendid gate, and a good game in the summer of my visit to Anfield Road on Saturday. Old Sol tried his best to make amends for his shortcomings last Saturday, and all were glad to see him except the players themselves. It was indeed a grand day, and the gate – well, instead of reckoning it by bare hundreds it actually ran into the thousands. Three thousand was about the figure shortly after the kick-off, and it was quite pleasing to see the spacious stand at the Oakfield Road end well-filled.”
