The first team v the reserves at Anfield


August 24, 1903
The first practice of Liverpool Football Club took place at Anfield in wet weather last evening. The League eleven opposed the reserve string.

Both sides entered into play vigorously, Sidney Smith opening the score for the “Reds.” Jack Parkinson and Francis McMullen added two for the reserves, whilst Frederick Buck equalised.

After the interval Herbert Craik, wrenching his ankle, had to retire.

In the first half inclement weather spoiled the play, but promising form was shown.

The new men gave every satisfaction, and another public trial will take place next Saturday.
