The last day of football

April 29, 1905
The winter pastime dies hard and interesting. The leadership of the premier league tourney of the country is still to be provided, and to-day the stage managers ring down the curtain over the most memorable season.

Liverpool are in a happy state. They want to conclude, if possible, with a century of goals to their credit – a fitting termination to a championship season; and doubtless there will be a large crowd present to see them against Burnley.

Liverpool have chosen their very strongest eleven, Arthur Goddard appearing again. There is just a fear that Maurice Parry will not be able to play. Consequently Tom Chorlton is held in reserve.

Liverpool Reserves go to Hyde Road late in the day, the kick-off being fixed for six o’clock.
