Liverpool v Newtown 9-0 (FA Cup: October 29, 1892)

October 29, 1892
Key note: “As usual there was a bit of diversity of opinion as to the number of spectators present. The actual number was over 4,000. Liverpool had made two changes in their team, substituting Hugh McQueen on the outside left in place of Andrew Kelvin. The latter is not at all a bad man, but he is a trifle on the light side, so that McQueen strengthens the weakest point in the forward division. He is very fast, and can centre the ball on the run, just as Alf Milward used to do a couple of seasons ago. He did not get very much to do, but what came in his way was done well.” (Source: Cricket and Football Field: November 5, 1892)
