West Manchester v Liverpool

October 10, 1892
Played on the ground of West Manchester, at Brookes’ bar. There were 2,500 persons present. John Miller started for Liverpool, who immediately got into close quarters, but the West receiving the ball out of close play, cleared danger, and shortly afterward received a free kick for a foul. Walch shot, but Ross saved. Play then settled in midfield.

The visitors next pressed, after repeated efforts Miller shot a fine goal. Nothing more was score up to half time.

After the interval the West had the best of the game at the beginning, and rushed the ball through from a corner. Miller shot the second goal for Liverpool, and just before time Andrew Kelvin shot the third goal.
