Wednesday, September 27 – 1916
In spite of victory at Preston, where Liverpool would have won very readily if the chances of getting simple goals had been taken, Liverpool have made alterations in their side for the Burnley game at Anfield on Saturday. They have brought a new right wing (Pinkney is damaged, like Metcalf) in Waine and Curtis.
The former is widely known and liked for his pertinacity, and the latter is a big player who, if he will let himself go, will get among the goals. He formerly played with Litherland F.C.
Team: Ted Taylor, Ephraim Longworth, Tommy Lucas, John Bamber, Walter Wadsworth, Donald Mackinlay, Robert Waine, Curtis, Fred Pagnam, Harry Lewis, and Tommy Cunliffe.
It will be seen that Lewis gets another trial – he deserves it.
