Blackpool v Liverpool 3-0 (League match: November 5, 1892)

November 5, 1892
Key note: “Liverpool were deposed from their proud position as champions of the Lancashire League on Saturday. Accompanied by about 40 enthusiastic supporters, among whom were Councillors John Houlding and Ephraim Walker, the party arrived in good time at Blackpool, in bright cheering weather. It was soon seen that, although the visitors were on the big side, the home team were little behind them, but were much better trained, and were as hard as nails. The terrific pace at which the home team went off told every one that they intended to force the game.” (Liverpool Mercury: November 7, 1892)
