William Scott, Irish international and ex-Everton and Leeds goalkeeper, has been good enough to come to the help of Liverpool F.C.
Tomorrow’s matches have become unusually interesting, thanks to the news given exclusively in last night’s “Echo.” This fellow Boardman found himself out of football work through Leigh giving up the game this season. He was tried with Atherton Colliery’s side, and scored twenty out of thirty goals in the first month. That’s good enough recommendation of his knowledge of where the goal lies, no matter whether he can head the ball or otherwise. At any rate, Bolton having done so well by means of wise selection of young players had no hesitation in experimenting this week with the big N.U. man. In view of this and the team changes Liverpool’s side has to undergo the match becomes exceptionally interesting, Bolton being undefeated.
