The supporters of football will, no doubt, be looking forward with interest to the coming practice matches of the Liverpool and Everton Clubs, so as to be able to judge of the capabilities of this season’s teams, in the hope that the English and League Cups may find their next resting place in Liverpool.
The practice match of the Liverpool Club has been fixed for tomorrow (Saturday), while Everton will play their practice match on the following Saturday (25th inst.). The kick off on each occasion will be at four o’clock. The committees of the clubs have kindly given permission for collections to be made at these matches on behalf of the Hospital Saturday Fund.
The ladies connected with that organisation will be sure to avail themselves of this opportunity for further increasing the amount available for distribution amongst the medical charities. The Lord Mayor (Mr. Louis S. Cohen), who have taken such deep interest in the movement and through whose efforts this opportunity has mainly been secured, has very kindly given his patronage to these matches. There is some idea that the new departure may result in the bestowal of a challenge cup for home and invitation matches on behalf of the medical charities. (Liverpool Mercury: August 17, 1900)
