“No” to liquors at football matches


December 23, 1896
The Church Temperance Society of the Liverpool Diocese has issued a circular letter to all the county and borough Magistrates in the diocese protesting against the granting of occasional licenses for the sale of intoxicating liquors at football matches, which is frequently done in various parts of Lancashire. Such licenses, they contend, are unnecessary and undesirable, as they would tempt many to drink, and unruly conduct would certainly be likely to occur, thereby bringing football into discredit.
