Liverpool make Fairhaven Hotel at Lytham their head quarters

Saturday, October 21 – 1899
Mr Tom Watson, the Liverpool secretary, writes: – “As to the team as we are to-day, well, fortune will not smile upon us. We played absolutely all over Notts County, Derby, and Bury, but we could no more win than bear it. To be ever on the losing side is a new experience for me, as you know; and is not a happy one. But we have had days of good success, and shall, I hope, renew them. Meanwhile we must grin and bear our adversities. We are now returned  to our old quarters at the Fairhaven Hotel at Lytham. In the past we never lost a match while training there, and I very sincerely hope that our luck may turn with our return to these quarters.”
