Liverpool and Bolton reserves draw

September 6, 1910
The second eleven played their first away game of the season, and after the gratifying display at Burden it was only to be expected that the Combination team would do itself credit at Liverpool on Monday afternoon.

Probably there is reason to be dissatisfied with a half loaf even on an opponents’ ground, seeing that no fewer than five men who have played in two out of three League games this season were included in the Wanderers’ side.

Both the Wanderers’ goals came from their extreme wing men, Vizard netting the first and Jimmy Whiteside the second. It was whilst Newton, who was injured in a collision with Gilligan, was absent, that the latter beat Feebery, who had gone into goal, thus equalising the score before the interval.

Resuming, the Wanderers went away with rare dash, and in the first five minutes Whiteside placed Bolton ahead. The Reds subsequently broke through the Bolton defence on many occasions, but bad shooting prevented them carrying their work to a successful conclusion. When the second half was well advanced Peake equalised for the Reds from a free kick, the ball passing into the net off Feebery’s foot.

Newton, in goal, played exceedingly well, saving a penalty from Peake. Stott and Feebery were resolute backs. A. Feebery at centre half got through a lot of work and generally kept Gilligan in check. The wing men, Whiteside and Vizard, were the pick of the forwards, their play always threatening danger.

Liverpool Reserves: Gus Beeby, Ephraim Longworth, Tom Rogers, John McConnell, Ernest Peake, Donald Mackinlay, James Speakman, Joe Brough, Sam Gilligan, Sam Bowyer, Harold Uren.
Bolton Wanderers Reserves: Sydney Newton, William Stott, Jack Feebury, William Robinson, Albert Feebery, Hugh Adamson, Jimmy Whiteside, Gordon Jones, Fred Shinton, Tommy Barber, Ted Vizard.
