September 12, 1892
Liverpool were favoured with a capital attendance on Saturday in their match against Stockton, and excitement ran high throughout the game.
The more these players are seen the more they will be patronised, and it is a pity that such fine talent should be wasted on empty benches. Jock Smith and Thomas Wyllie were a little weak, and in fact the whole of the forward division seemed to lack precision in front of goal; but no doubt this will be put right when John Miller returns to his position.
Malcolm McVean were the best of the forward and working extremely hard for his team.
Liverpool won a fast game by 2 goals to 1.
