The final tie for the possession of the Liverpool Cup is down for settlement to-morrow, the Bootle ground being the venue, and the kick-off 4 p.m. On account of the rivalry existing between the contestants – Everton and Liverpool – the game has created a vast amount of interest, and arrangements have been made for a large attendance.
Recognising the known abilities of their opponents, Everton have decided on strengthening their Combination team by the inclusion of such League players as Richard Williams, Dickie Boyle, Alex Stewart, and probably a couple of forwards.
The game is sure to be one of the keenest and most exciting description, as Liverpool are determined to try their best to dispossess Everton of the handsome trophy.
