Bury v Liverpool 3-1 (League match: March 28, 1908)

March 28, 1908
Key note: “There could be no two opinions about the spoil having fallen to merit, for the victors were full value for the two points and also for their couple of goals’ margin. Liverpool opened with some high-class work among the forwards, Cox, the outside left, creating a profound impression by his clever manipulation of the ball. He completely nonplussed Humphreys in the first few minutes of the game, but the sturdy and budding Bury half-back had his revenge later on.” (Bury Times: April 1, 1898)
