Everton best at cricket

August 30, 1911
The Evertonians took ample revenge for their defeat of a fortnight ago, when last they dismissed Liverpool F.C. for 45, and thus won the cricket match by 78 runs. The Anfield men made a very poor batting show, a direct contrast to their display in the previous game. They were at the wickets less than an hour, and only one player reached double figures. The first wicket stand realised 20 runs, and thereafter it was practically a procession, little resistance being offered to the bowling of Mennier and Pinkney.

The Liverpool score card:
Sam Bowyer 0, R.Riley 11, Ephraim Longworth 8, Harold Uren 1, Arthur Goddard 3, Tom Rogers 0, Ralph Holden 0, Harry Lowe 8, Sam Gilligan 0, Robert Crawford 3, George Paterson 1, extra: 7.
