Charity awaits Liverpool and Anfield


February 26, 1894
The annual benefit to the Stanley Hospital at the Anfield ground, instead of burlesque, will be characteristic of genuine football – a wise departure – and an exhibition will be given of both the Rugby and the Association games.

Arrangements have been concluded by the committee of the Liverpool Club, assisted by a number of gentlemen connected with the leading Rugby clubs in Liverpool and West Cheshire, to hold the festival on Thursday next, the proceeds to be devoted to the benefit of the Stanley Hospital.

Newton Heath have consented to oppose Liverpool in an association game (kick off at 2 30), to be followed at four o’clock by a Rugby match, Liverpool and Old Boys v. Birkenhead Park and New Brighton.
