Season preview 1920-21: Liverpool F.C. (Daily Express)


August 26, 1920
There are no startling changes at Liverpool. Ephraim Longworth, back from South Africa, will again captain the side, and in the early part of the season, at any rate the players will be much the same as a few months ago, when the fourth position was secured. Additions to the playing strength include John Scott, goal, and Harry McNaughton, goal. Scott is a brother of the first-team “keeper,” and McNaughton last played for St. Bernard’s.

The players engaged are: –
Goal: Elisha Scott, John Scott, Harry McNaughton, and Howard Baker (amateur champion high jumper).
Backs: Ephraim Longworth, Donald Mackinlay, Tom Lucas, Billy Jenkinson, James Penman.
Half-backs: John Bamber, Walter Wadsworth, Tom Bromilow, William Lacey, William Matthews, Frank Checkland, John McNab, William Cunningham, John Ford.
Forwards: Jack Sheldon, Dick Forshaw, Tom Miller, Harry Chambers, John Miller, Albert Pearson, Harry Lewis, Harold Wadsworth, Dick Johnson, Peter McKinney, T. Cox, William Wilson.
