Liverpool v. Darwen. – This match, in the first round of the Lancashire Senior Cup competition, will take place on Saturday next, on the Liverpool ground, Anfield.
Considering the form displayed by Darwen in the English Cup contest last Saturday against Aston Villa and the fact, we believe, that the Liverpool men are in strict training for the encounter, a good exposition of the game may be safely predicted.
The home team will be selected from the following players: –
Sydney Ross, goal; Andrew Hannah and Duncan McLean, backs; John McCartney, Joe McQue, Matt McQueen, James McBride or John Cameron; half backs; Thomas Wyllie, Jock Smith, John Miller, Malcolm McVean and Hugh. McQueen, forwards.
