Pinkney makes his Anfield bow

October 27, 1915
James Dawson, the outside left, has had a period of rest, and now re-enters. He will be partnered by Henderson, Mackinlay going back to the intermediate line, which reads very hefty and sturdy line. Watson joins Pinkney on the right wing, and the latter thus makes his first show at Anfield, although he has played in two away matches. Elisha Scott is still holding the fort and this will be his debut at home this season.

Liverpool (v. Manchester United, at Anfield, 3.15 p.m.). – Elisha Scott; Ephraim Longworth, James Middlehurst; William Lacey, William Molyneux, Donald Mackinlay; Ernest Pinkney, Wilfred Watson, Fred Pagnam, James Henderson, James Dawson.
