No team in the League has suffered more by injuries than the Anfielders, and with the exception of three players, every member of the first team has been laid up. Hence the repeated changes.
The team leave Exchange Station at 11,37 a.m.: kick off 2,30. The Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company are running an excursion, which leaves at one o’clock.
