April 6, 1909
Reserves, Lancashire Combination, at Anfield.
Liverpool Reserves – Workington 2-1 (1-1).
Liverpool Reserves (2-3-5): Gus Beeby; Tom Rogers, James Hughes; George Latham, Ernest Peake, Sam Hignett; James Speakman, Bertram Goode, William Hunter, Sam Bowyer, Mike Griffin.
Workington (2-3-5): Colley; Hemphill +9.
The goals: 0-1 Hemphill, 1-1 Hunter, 2-1 Hunter.
A keenly contested game resulted from the meeting of these clubs at Anfield last night. Workington opened well, and in a few minutes Hemphill gave them the lead. Liverpool tried hard, and Hunter equalised, the interval the score being one goal each.
After the half-time, the Liverpool forwards showed good form, and Hunter put his side in front with a clever goal. These was a keen struggle afterwards, and though both Beeby and Colley made good saves, each side missed chances.
Liverpool has still a chance of the Championship, as it has yet to meet Oldham and Everton.
