Local lad Roberts given a trial

December 16, 1905
Liverpool have chosen the usual side. The men will go to Southport on Tuesday for a fortnight. This in view of the heavy Christmas programme.

The reserve team versus Darwen includes an outside left named Roberts, who was some time ago an excellent lad with the Industrial School. A well-known old local player was refereeing in a school match, and saw much that was good in Robert’s play. The lad subsequently joined the Army, and being home on furlough is to be given a trial on Saturday.
