Liverpool v Bury 2-1 (League match: April 27. 1908)

April 27, 1908
Key note: “After an interesting, if rather unexciting, game at Anfield last evening, the Liverpudlians wound up their season by beating Bury by the odd goal in three. To the delight of their supporters, the ‘Reds’ finished up well above Everton in the League table. It was not a game in which the forwards on either side had much of a say in the mater, for generally the play of the backs was always too good for the attackers. Liverpool, however, held the advantage, and after being a goal down soon after the start, ran out well-deserved winners, even though a mistake by Lindsay in conceding a corner towards the end directly led up to the winning goal. Dewhurst was the best of the halves, while of a moderate lot of forwards Hibbert was much the pick, though Booth and Richards were occasionally prominent. Liverpool, also were well served in defence. Raisbeck, as usual, worked very hard, while Cox and Orr made a good left wing, and Goddard was fast and clever.” (Manchester Courier: April 28, 1908)
