A quiet Easter for Liverpool

Saturday, April 17 – 1897
The players of the Liverpool Club have had a holiday this Easter-time, as circumstances have compelled the directors to cancel fixtures. They will play a friendly match with Everton on Monday, but there will be scarcely much interest in this. Liverpool have endeavoured time after time to prove their superiority to their great local rivals, and in a friendly encounter this is their chance to show whether they are really a better team. On Wednesday the Liverpudlians travel to Burton, where they are booked to battle with Burton Wanderers in the final of the Bass Charity Cup competition. Liverpool just managed to beat Walsall Town in the semi final, and they ought on paper credentials to annex the handsome trophy. If the result if fortunate to the Liverpool team they will be the happy possessors of the finest piece of plate offered for competition in football circles. (Liverpool Mercury, 17-04-1897)
