Second practice game at Anfield


August 28, 1896
The second practice game of Liverpool F.C. took place at Anfield Friday, and the ground was comfortably filled with local enthusiasts. Sides of Blue and White faced each other, and, contrary to all anticipation, the White had altogether the better of the game, and won easily by 3 goals to nil. The play was not of a high class character, and it is hoped that when the serious work of the season commences, the efforts of some of the players will be more judiciously directed than they were last evening.

The following took the field;
Blues: Storer, goal; Goldie and Wilkie, backs; Neill, McQue, Cleghorn, half backs; Michael, Ross, Allan, Hannah, and Bradshaw, forwards.
White:  Donnelly, goal; McQueen, Dunlop, backs; McCartney, Holmes, McLean, half backs; Geary, McVean, Clark, Bill Keech, Bull, forwards.
