The leaving of Liverpool


May 1, 1893
There was quite an exodus of football players from Exchange Station on Monday morning. Several of the Bootle players had gone home at midnight, but the bulk went by the 9.45 a.m. train, a saloon being attached for them. Most of the Liverpool players left by this train, whilst the Everton men and the defunct “Callies” made the number up to about 17.
