The toss of a coin

December 7, 1908
Amongst the spectators at Ewood Park on Monday were Messrs. Tom Watson and James Ramsay, the secretary and director respectively of the Liverpool club. The former tossed for choice of ground for the final tie in the Lancashire Cup Competition, in which the Anfielders and the Rovers are interested. Blackburn won the toss, so that the match will take place at Ewood Park on Monday next.
