Liverpool came through the first stage of the English cup very satisfactory on Saturday last. They were without Smith, whose ankle is far from being well, but included a new half-back – McCartney, of St. Mirren.
At Nantwich, in wet weather, before a poor gate. Liverpool, in the first half, played a better game than their opponents, but gained no points. On the re-start Nantwich livened up somewhat, and for a time the game was equal. Liverpool again assumed the aggressive, and scored two goals in a very short time after each other. Final result – Liverpool 3 goals; Nantwich, nil.
(Liverpool Mercury, 17-10-1892)
** Note that Mercury wrote the final score to be 3-0. The correct score was of course 4-0.
