  1. Hi,
    Fascinating site and thank you. Surprisingly it appears that a a likely relative of mine, Cothliff, appeared in this match v S.Liverpool. Are you able to advise how I could get more details please? Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi Simon,

    Unfortunately I do not have any more information about him. I will check with a fellow historian if he can find any more about him. I will also keep an eye out for any future finds I might get.



  3. Robert Cothliff. Born Bootle 1890. Died 1960 Cheshire.
    Central League reg. April 1915.
    I have only seen him in line-ups for LFC in that match against South Liverpool.
