The Liverpool goals:
* The first goal, which fell to MACKINLAY, was somewhat in the nature of a surprise. He had apparently got tired of watching futile attempts by the forwards and chimed in with a run and a long drive. Fay essayed a retort with his ever-ready head, and the ball skimming his hair, sailed past Capper into the far corner of the net.
* The second goal, for which MATTHEWS was responsible, was well worked for and well deserved.

Jimmy Fay, Southport Vulcan.
