Key note: “The game was very stubbornly contested, but did not reach level attained in previous between these second strings. Everton were the more finished in their endeavours, as far as mid-field work was concerned, but they were very lax when within shooting range, though they found Perkins in First League form when their best efforts were forthcoming. The Liverpool half-backs were not the source of support to the front line that might have reasonably been expected, though Raisbeck, brother of the League player, improved as the game progressed, and accomplished some capital work in the later stages.” (Athletic News: November 8, 1902)
