Nuggets from Cricket and Football Field


Saturday, May 2 – 1896
* Thomas Cleghorn clung too fondly altogether to that Albion forward, for which a “penalty” had to be incurred. You know the result: so does Harry Storer. “Mum’s” the word after “penalty”
* Liverpool’s Test matches realised £680, which represents half of the gross takings in their four matches. Although their expenses have been heavy they must have derived some pecuniary advantage as well.
* Liverpool FC have not decided yet whether they will run a second eleven or not, but we know some of the committee are much in favour of their reserves being included in a good second and sound Combination or League.
