The name will be Spion Kop

September 25, 1906
The meeting of Everton and Liverpool at Anfield is the topic of the week. The very sensible arrangements by which the home side will fill the big stand is already being eagerly enjoyed.

Tickets alone will gain admission to this stand, and these (at 3s and 1s. 6d) have been selling excellently. As will be seen from our advertising column, they can be obtained in the centre of the city. Extra special endeavours are being put fourth to make the Oakfield Road bank more accommodating. This huge wall of earth has been termed “Spion Kop,” and no-doubt this epic name will always be used in future referring to this “spot.”
