Friday, December 13 – 1918
Liverpool, as I announced yesterday, have the prodigal son in their ranks. They have not, it is said, fallen on his neck and kissed him, neither have they killed the fatted calf.
The fact is Liverpool have Schofield on a League form, and they were not pleased with his change to Southport Vulcan. They liked his style of play, and although he had not been in best form this season, they were prepared to forget this fact, because they knew he was muscle-bound. However, all is now well, and doubtless the recuperating air of Liverpool will bring Schofield back to his best – which is a very high standard, you know.
At Blackburn to-morrow against the famed old Rovers I expect the Liver men to win in spite of the improved form of the Rovers in the last few weeks.
Liverpool. – Wm. Scott; Speakman, Jenkinson; Bamber, W. Wadsworth, Mackinlay; H. Wadsworth, Metcalf, Green, Lewis, Schofield.
