March 7, 1908
Seven goals were scored in the Combination fixture at Barrow, but the home team managed to secure the odd one, and thereby credited themselves with a much needed couple of points. Some amount of feeling was introduced into the game, and a player from each side was ordered off.
The first goal, which was credited to Liverpool was stoutly disputed by the Barrow players, who asserted that the ball went directly into the net from a corner-kick. However, they won, and should succeed in steering clear of the lowest places in the results’ table.
On the form Barrow showed at Goodison Park on Tuesday last, the team is quite good enough to account for the majority of opponents in Division 1 of their competition.
