Though the weather at Birmingham could scarcely have been less favourable for football, ten thousand people ventured out to see the game. Birmingham were without Alex McClure, Johnny Crosbie and George Davies, and Liverpool had to take the field without Donald Mackinlay. The ground was n such bad condition as to make accurate football impossible.

More than one chance was missed, and half time came with nothing scored. After the change of ends Liverpool had all the best of the play. Lewis and Forshaw worked their way through, but when the moment came to kick at goal Forshaw missed shooting through.

A little later, however, a fine pass by Hopkin enabled Chambers to score. Just before the close Chambers kicked a second goal, giving Liverpool the victory by two goals to none.
