October 1, 1892
Key note: “Originally the fixture with West Manchester was set down to be played away, but the venue was changed, therefore Anfield Road was the scene. And a nasty wet one it was, too. Unfortunately for the club, but fortunately for the spectators, there was just room for the lot under the large covered stand, and those who had previously been on the uncovered stands showed their appreciation of the invitation to come in out of the wet by a hearty hurrah.”(Cricket and Football Field: October 8, 1892).
