The Anfielders have every reason to look back upon their season’s experience with feelings of pleasure and satisfaction. Not only have they won back their position in the First Division of the League, but they had made a profit up to the end of April of £1,511 4s. 6d. In gate receipts the club took £8,468 16s. 3d., the proportion paid to visiting clubs being £924 15s. 2d. In addition, Liverpool received £632 4s. 11d. the part proceeds of matches played, and £106 8s. 6d. for season tickets. As against this they paid their players £3,768 10s. in wages, £492 15s. 2d. in travelling expenses, and £598 10s. 10d. in training expenses and trainers’ wages. With a substantial balance at the bank, and a serviceable team at their disposal, the Liverpudlians may look forward with some confidence to their new lease of life in the First Division.
