Report from the Joint Everton and Liverpool Match Programme (With the Reserves), Saturday, October 15 – 1910.
The return fixture between the Liverpool Reserves elevens and the Old Xavierans provided the Reds with another victory. In the first half the Amateurs gained the lad, Shea scoring a capital goal for them.
After the change of ends, the Reds went ahead in fine style, and Speakman equalised. Then Brough came into the picture with a series of goal, and Bowyer also netted. Thompson secured another for the Old Boys, who were beaten by six goals to two.
Lockhart kept a good goal for the losers, despite the heavy score against him. A likely full back is Ranger; young, clever and plucky. He kept the Reds’ left win well under control.
The Liverpool forwards gave a fine exhibition in the second half, the right wing being in deadly mood.
