Liverpool and District Notes: May 13, 1895 (Athletic News)


May 13, 1895
The Liverpool team will be found much the same as last season. Probably two new forwards and a full-back will constitute the changes, and the team are sure to make a bold bid for the leadership.

Barney Battles and the other Hearts’ player (*) have been released on certain conditions, so that the Liverpool team will not vary much from the one that did duty last season.
