September 30, 1914
Here’s Liverpool’s month’s work, which must be tacked on to £241 taken at trial games: From the directors, players and staff, £17; percentage of gate receipts, £72; collected on ground, £53 9s. 6d – total, £142 9s. 6d.
That makes a total of nearly £400. And there’s more to go. Mr. Tom Watson asks me to thank all those friends who have helped in collecting money at the matches, and also to thank the Veterans’ Band for their music at the ground.
The Liverpool officer announces some casualties, and says that in view of the fact that last week Ephraim Longworth and Tom Miller were reported as starters and did not come under starter’s orders the selection of the team for Saturday’s match will be held over until Friday.
One point is certain, however – Harry Lowe will not be able to play for some weeks through the ligaments of the back of the leg being torn. This is bad luck for Lowe has been playing as well as ever this season, and had apparently got over his “Final” tie bother.
