The directors and leaders at Anfield 1911/12


Wednesday, July 5 – 1911
The Liverpool Football Club are getting their house in order for a season which it is hoped will be prosperous. Two practice matches have been arranged for August, on Saturday, the 19th, and Monday, the 28th.

At a meeting of the directors the following officials of the club were appointed: – Chairman, Mr. John McKenna; vice-chairman, Mr. W.C.Briggs; Finance Committee, Messrs. W.R.Williams, Asbury, and Briggs; Ground Committee, Messrs. Keating, Martindale, Ramsay, and Worgan.

Arthur Goddard has again been elected captain of the first team, and Ronald Orr sub captain.

The directors desire to express their sincere regret at the resignation of one of their colleagues, Mr. John Fare.

Mr. Fare’s official severance from the club as a distinct loss. He is an excellent judge of a footballer, and picked up one or two players for the Reds that have turned out captures.
