Key note: “The concluding League engagement at Anfield was with Glossop Reserve, in which Liverpool proved deserved winners by two clear goals. Bovill scored in the first half, and after the change of ends Lester added a second point. The honours went to the superior side, and only the capital defence of the Glossop custodian, Butterworth, averted a more decisive defeat. Bovill was the best of the home forwards, while in the rear division Grayer was again conspicious. In the visitors’ ranks, Dearnaley defended syurdily, and Toward showed cleverness at outside right.” (Athletic News: April 28, 1913)
