Robert Waine for Liverpool

December 30, 1915
Liverpool F.C. have been going great guns recently, and their local victory over Everton is sufficient to entice their followers to attend Saturday’s game at Anfield versus Preston North End. Few folk know that Liverpool have been doing marvels in the scoring line in the last two matches. They not only scored five against Everton, but they actually netted the ball six times against Burnley’s staid defence, three goals being disallowed – one on good cause and the others on doubtful points.

The team include a winger named Robert Waine, who takes Ernest Pinkney’s place. He is another of the St. Helens products, and, though small, is clever.

Liverpool (v. Preston, at Anfield, 2.30): – Elisha Scott, Ephraim Longworth, James Middlehurst, Norman Bradley, Arthur Goddard, Donald Mackinlay, Robert Waine, Wilfred Watson, Fred Pagnam, William Banks, James Dawson.
