Liverpool’s ground scheme


June 20, 1927
Liverpool are utilising their financial resources wisely in providing for the comfort of their supporters. As we announced in the Athletic News a week ago they had a profit of £5,955 on last season’s working, and they have a credit balance of £36,088, from which they are carrying out extensive improvements at their Anfield ground.

“Spion Kop” is not only to be re-terraced, but it is also to be covered in and joined up to the stands on each side. This will provide accommodation for an additional 8,000 spectators, and a re-terracing of the Anfield Road side will make room for 3,500 more on this part of the ground. The scheme will be completed in time for the opening of the season, when, the chairman, Mr. Thomas Crompton, said at the annual meeting, the accommodation would be unequalled in the country.
