A social for Boothe Athletic

September 14, 1892
The Bootle Athletic held their first social on Wednesday evening, when 46 players and members sat down to a splendid knife and fork tea, provided by Mr. John Barrett.

Mr. John Barber, vice president, presided over the after proceedings, supported by Tommy Higgins and Mike Higgins, who seemed weighed down with the honours conferred upon them, for services rendered to the game, by the Liverpool club.

The proceedings were of the usual order, and were thoroughly enjoyed by all. It is proposed to hold a smoker fortnightly, which will tend to draw the players, members and committee more together.
