Notable improvements on the Liverpool ground


August 8, 1910
Chief amongst the improvements made by Liverpool in readiness for September 1 is a new goal stand at the Anfield Road end of the enclosure, erected at a cost of £1,500. This completes the scheme of the directors as regards the adequate equipment of their ground.

The old goal stand was demolished last winter during a severe storm, but the club have had a well-built brick wall and an up-to-date stand put up at this end of the pitch.

The Anfielders consider (write “Junius”) that they have got together a capital list of players and hope to to exceed the achievements of last season when they reached second place in the League. Their defence has been strengthened by the acquisition of Alf West and Ephraim Longworth, and the forward line is to all intents and purposes as full of resource as last season. The news that Sam Hardy is again fit and well is very welcome to Anfielders.

There is likely to be little change in the personnel of the League eleven at Goodison Park. Chief concern is centred on the outside right berth. That the absence of Sharp will be keenly felt goes without saying, and a great responsibility will attach to the player selected to fill the post in the League eleven.
