Leicester City v Liverpool 3-1 (League match, August 29, 1925)

August 29, 1925
Key note: “Liverpool kicked off none to smartly. They ‘lost’ Tom Scott through ‘stomach trouble’ which started on the journey to Leicester yesterday. This meant a shuffling of forces; Chambers went to inside right, and Mackinlay to inside left; while Longworth slipped into the defending portion-act for the first time – at a moment’s notice. The visit to Leicester was an important one, first because Leicester resumed their First Division career, and secondly because Anfield players renewed acquaintance with Harold Wadsworth and Findlay; the last named was signed during the summer period.” (Liverpool Echo: August 29, 1925)
