Double encounter with Bury awaits


Friday, November 3 – 1905
There will be a big crowd present at Anfield on Saturday, when Bury are visitors Looking at the former cup-fighters’ record one must express sorrow with them in their plight. Sentiment must not be allowed to enter the footballers’ mind for one moment; besides should not he Bury officials have profited by last season’s dire experience? They have too long stood by players living on their reputations. Liverpool must be prepared to go all the way to win.

The Liverpool directorate have decided to rely on the same eleven which did such excellent business at Manchester on Saturday last for to-morrow’s engagement with Bury at Anfield. The team will be: Sam Hardy, goal; Alf West and Billy Dunlop backs; Maurice Parry, Alex Raisbeck, and James Bradley, half-backs; Arthur Goddard, Robert Robinson, Joe Hewitt John Carlin, and Jack Cox, forwards.

The Liverpool second team to do duty against Bury Reserves, at Bury, to-morrow will be: John Ryder, goal; Harry Griffiths and Tom Chorlton, backs; John Hughes, George Latham, and James Hughes, half-backs; Ellis Dudley, William Jordan, Robert Blanthorne, James Gorman, and James Garside, forwards.
They travel by the 1.10 pm train from Exchange Station, Tithebarn-street.
