A scene from the Notts County-match

Saturday, February 15 – 1902
The sphere shot into the centre with lightning-like rapidity, and Walter Bull, darting in, sent it spinning at Bill Perkins’s left section. The Liverpool custodian sprang across his goal, and managed to handle the ball, but it rebounded, and Bull hastened to make amends, but instead of scoring it struck the left post, and once more came across the goalmouth, giving Percy Humphreys a remarkable easy opening, but instead of planting the leather in Perkin’s garden he clumsily put it behind, into the backyard.” This is an extract from a Liverpool report of the match at Anfield-road on Saturday.
