Quick note: “The supporters of the old Wychemen have now ceased to despair of their team ever doing anything again since seeing their performance against Mr. John Houlding’s Liverpool team on Saturday. Of course, they were defeated by four goals to none; but they played such a determined game on a fearfully heavy ground, and against a team almost twice their weight, that their supporters may well take confidence.”
