A day of rejoicing at Liverpool


May 7, 1923
At the conclusion of the game with Stoke at Anfield on Saturday, Mr. John McKenna reviewed the history of the club, and congratulated the players on their success in equalling the record of West Bromwich Albion. Donald Mackinlay, on receiving the trophy, was loudly cheered by a large crowd of spectators, after which the players and officials retired to the gymnasium, where the proceedings lost nothing in enthusiasm.

Mr. William Robert Williams spoke of the happy relations which had existed between the officials and the players for many years past, and he complimented the team on the splendid spirit they had displayed throughout the tourney. Mr. McKenna supported the chairman’s remarks, and asked Mrs. Matt McQueen to accept, on behalf of her husband, a gold medal as a small token of appreciation for his invaluable service to the club during his 31 years’ association with it. In recognition of their captaincy during the past tow years Walter Wadsworth handed to Donald Mackinlay and Ephraim Longworth miniature replicas of the cup, suitably inscribed.
