Owen Williams to make his debut

February 23, 1917
Liverpool kept their home record intact until Southport beat them, and when the return “home” engagement is played to-morrow at Anfield we ought to see a very fine fast game even though both sides lost last week by one-nil. It is always an education to see Lol Abram, and there are many other points of added interest in the fixture.

Owen Williams makes his debut in class football. Long ago I remember him playing in South and Wrexham’s “time-dishonoured” matches, and he go through a lot of work those times. Liverpool are anxious to resume their winning ways, and as the weather has improved so much I am fairly confident that the game will be very even and interesting.

Liverpool. – Kenneth Campbell, Ephraim Longworth, Tommy Lucas, John Bamber, Owen Williams, Donald Mackinlay, Norman Bradley, Arthur Metcalf, Tommy Bennett, Harry Lewis, Tommy Cunliffe.
Liverpool v. Southport C. – At Anfield, tomorrow (Saturday) 3.30. Admission 7d, Stands Extra.
