Fairfield v Liverpool 1-4 (League match: January 2, 1893)

January 2, 1893
Key note: “The championship of the Lancashire League promises to produce a grand fight. That coveted position lies between the leading three, and their progress is keenly watched every match. Liverpool regained their place at the top on Monday by defeating Fairfield, a club who the Saturday previous had given such a fright to Blackpool by drawing with them on the latter’s ground, but Bury again jumped to the front on Saturday.”
