More than passing interest is aroused by the game between South Liverpool and Liverpool at Dingle Park, and the Stoke v Rochdale match, which has been hanging on the shelf for months.
If Rochdale win they will please themselves, but they must win well to bring Liverpool to the place they threw away without a thought of the morrow.
South will have almost as many players in their opposition side as in their own – think that fact over, as it is a complex suggestion. Dingle has certainly been a fine nursing home for our senior clubs, and Liverpool have taken all the advantages of the offsprings, as witness such names as Bennett, Jenkinson, Page, Waine, &c.
It is, in view of the string teams chosen, quite a tit-bit in football fare, and Dingle Park should realised its record attendance to-morrow.
Liverpool. – Bickerstaffe; Ephraim Longworth, Billy Jenkinson; John Bamber, Alex Robertson, Donald Mackinlay; Dick Birchall, Thomas Green, Tommy Bennett, Harry Lewis, George Schofield.
South Liverpool. – Percy Kite; Jack Page, Seddon; Owen Williams, Dick Carlisle, E. Williams; Robertson, Jones, Siddall, Tom Page, Tattum.
The scores of the Stoke v Rochdale fight will be announced at intervals, so that Liverpool may know their fate in the League championship. The hand of the outdoor blind will be in attendance from 2.30 to wile away the waiting moment.
The referee is Mr. A. Roberts, of Wigan.
