The local derby coming up


Tuesday, September 27 – 1910
The crowd at Goodison Park on Saturday reached nearly 30,000, an indication that football is as popular as ever. The receipts amounted to £826, which sum is extremely good for a league match. On Saturday next, however, the Liverpool club ought to beat this, inasmuch as the “Reds” are due to oppose the “Blues” in the first of the season’s local “Derbys” at Anfield.

The accommodation has been increased since last season, and as many as 47,000 people can witness the game in comfort. The alterations at the Spion Kop end of the ground and at the Anfield side will enable 2,000 more people to see the game, so that all who desire to witness the match on Saturday should have no difficulty in obtaining a place.

Reserved seats on the new stand may be obtained at 3s. and 2s. whilst one shilling seats are also available. The paddock in front of the new stand is also set apart for the shilling spectators, whilst the charge for Kemlyn-road stand is 1s. 6d. The rest of the ground is priced at 6d., and there is room for 30,000 at this fee. Tickets for the reserved seats may be had at the local sports outfitters.

I shall have further opportunities during the week of referring to the match, but at this sitting, to satisfy those who at this time of he season argue about previous results between the teams, I may give the results: –

1910 historical derbies

On Saturday the teams meet for the 29th time in League warfare.
