Reds v Stripes game at Anfield


August 11, 1920
Football makes its bow to the public next Saturday in the form of trial games. Liverpool start the ball rolling at Anfield at 3.30 with a game Reds v Stripes. The Reds’ team will field the identical eleven that took part in that lengthy Lancashire Cup final against Manchester United last season, when 140 minutes’ play resulted in a draw of 1-1. The Stripes’ team included newcomers, so the football public can judge their worth for themselves. The prices of admission are 6d. 1s. and boys 4d., including tax.

Teams:
Reds: Elisha Scott, Tommy Lucas, Donald Mackinlay, William Lacey, Walter Wadsworth, Tom Bromilow, Jack Sheldon, Dick Forshaw, Tom Miller, Harry Chambers, Albert Pearson.
Stripes: Harry McNaughton, James Penman, Sam Speakman, John McNab, William Matthews, William Cunningham, John Miller, Peter McKinney, Dick Johnson, Harry Lewis, Harold Wadsworth.
