November 23, 1908
Key note: “Our great local clubs, Everton and Liverpool, were drawn together in the semi-final of the Lancashire Cup Competition. The officials of the two clubs tossed for choice of grounds. The Everton secretary was successful, and the game was played at Goodison Park. The result was that Liverpool qualified for the final by two goals to nil. On the run of the play there was to other ending possible than a triumph for the Anfield Road organisation. But, after all, there was nothing to boast about in a full Liverpool League team, with two exceptions, vanquishing what was really an Everton reserve eleven. The game itself calls for little in the nature of serious comment. Liverpool made their position secure in the first half of the game. During this period they gave an exhibition of delightful football, that is when an opposition is not too fertile or resourceful. Goode, the reserve inside right of Liverpool scored a couple of fine goals, besides accomplishing a lot of really clever work.” (Liverpool Courier: November 24, 1908)
