Friday, April 17 – 1914
A meeting of the Liverpool Theatrical Gala Council was held yesterday at the Bee Hotel, Mr. W.W. Kelly, the chairman, presiding.
Through the interest of Mr. Tom Watson (secretary of the Liverpool Football Club) it has been arranged that, providing the Cup final at the Crystal Palace on the 25th inst. prove decisive. Liverpool and Burnley will play the game over again for the Theatrical Gala Charities before the end of the month on the ground of the Liverpool Football Club.
This not only should ensure the distribution of the largest amount recorded by the Gala fund, but will enable thousands of Liverpool enthusiasts to see on their own ground a semblance of that which they may be unable to witness at the Crystal Palace. Whatever the result of the Cup contest, the exhibition for the sake of charity is bound to reflect something of the seriousness of the real struggle.
