A capital display by Carlisle United

March 6, 1908
At Anfield, yesterday, Carlisle gave a capital display of football against Liverpool, and won cleverly by four goals to three. The visitors were the better side in the first half, and though Liverpool early scored through Charles Hewitt, Carlisle put on goals through Sanderson and Tait and crossed over leading by two goals to one.

Resuming, Blythe scored from a corner, but Hewitt added two goals in succession, and equalised. When Tait retired hurt afterwards Carlisle’s chances appeared to have gone, but the visitors played up finely, and Beauchope, scoring from a corner, they won as stated.
