Nuggets from Cricket and Football Field (January 1, 1910)

January 1, 1910
* Jim Harrop was sent off the field on Saturday – by Billy Hughes. The last named did not enhance his reputation in the Liverpool match.
* Why does not Joe Hewitt play the game in the first team he did with the second against St. Helens Recreations? He was at the top of his form.
* John Macdonald, of Liverpool, is possibly the cleverest Scottish outside left identified with English League football.
* Billy Dunlop raised the ire of the Bolton spectators by his tactics towards young Jimmy Whiteside.
* Little yet Goode was the verdict passed upon Liverpool’s emergency right winger at Bramall Lane.
* We are pleased to see that Harold Uren shows an inclination at last to abandon his “sand dancing” propensities.
* James Bradley may have no claims to figure as a first class goalkeeper, but against Bolton Wanderers he kept a clean sheet, and even Sam Hardy could not have done a better job than this.
* Tom Chorlton and Tom Rogers are the best pair of backs at the disposal of Liverpool, and if persisted with they may develop into as fine a pair of defenders as the Livers ever had.
* The weather clerk on duty in Liverpool apparently dislikes football. He sends fog on every occasion a match is in progress, which disappears also on every occasion directly the game is over! This has happened regularly for many weeks past.
* Bolton Wanderers were greatly upset by a penalty kick given against them at Anfield Road. There were many spectators who judged that Bert Baverstock’s handling was purely accidental. This from Liverpool.
* Gus Beeby, who made his first appearance in Liverpool’s League team at Woolwich, distinguished himself by saving a penalty kick, and repeated the performance the next day against Sheffield United.
* Liverpool had some excuse for failing at Sheffield against the United. With Arthur Goddard, Jimmy Stewart, and Ronald Orr absent through injuries, their forward line was quite upset.
* Gus Beeby, of the Reds, deserves a pat on the back for saving two penalties in his first two League trials. This is even more than a Sam Hardy has been able to accomplish.
