Benefit match at Anfield


May 22, 1905
Distress among the unemployed is reported to be still severe. To raise funds for further relief the Unemployed Committee has met and completed arrangements for a benefit football match, to be played on the Liverpool Club’s ground on the 27th inst., between a picked team of the schoolboys of Liverpool and of Birkenhead. Silver medals with gold centres are to be awarded to the winners; the losers will be consoled with silver medals without the “precious” centre. The match will be under the patronage of the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress.
(Liverpool Daily Post: May 22, 1905)
