Liverpool also accomplished a like result at Ashton, where they tackled the newly promoted Town club. They came near winning, and it was close on time before the home side managed to make the score three-all. Carlin and Parkinson obtained the goals, and the former is proving himself an accomplished artist. A trial in the League eleven would be a fitting reward for his services, and maybe the other members of the first team might take heart and emulate his methods. Eleven goals have been secured in three Combination matches, but the defence seems as unreliable as ever, and Platt, although effecting some excellent clearances blunders badly with other easy shots. One of these latter occurred at Ashton often, for nine awkward drives had been negotiated.
