Season preview 1911-12: Liverpool F.C. (Lloyds Weekly News)


August 27, 1911
Liverpool enthusiasts say that their team will make a determined effort to obtain a better position than their neighbours at Goodison Park. Sam Hardy, of course, will again guard the posts while Kenneth Campbell, a Scottish Junior International custodian, will be the reserve goalkeeper.

Campbell comes from Cambuslang Rangers, and he is highly spoken of. Ephraim Longworth and Robert Crawford will probably fill the back positions, while both Tom Chorlton and Tom Rogers are available as reserve defenders. The club is well equipped with halves, for in addition to Robert Robinson, Jim Harrop, and John McConnell, Harry Lowe, of Gainsborough Trinity, is regarded as a thoroughly capable half.

Jack Parkinson will again lead the attack, while Henry Beveridge, the ex Ardrossan Celtic pivot, is looked upon as a useful player. Other new forwards are John Bovill, who comes from Chesterfield (a man with a great reputation), and David Macdonald, a Scottish junior, who is only seventeen years of age.
