Quick note: “Elisha Scott, who captained Liverpool at Goodison Park today in the 63rd League Derby match with Everton, was honoured because of his magnificent run with the Anfield club. He has now completed more than 400 league appearances, and with F.A. Cup-ties and international matches, is well on the way to 500 games. When he took the field Scott, was greeted with a cheer his wonderful record deserved. Queues had formed outside the ground long before the gates opened, and an hour before the kick off the Goodison Road stand had “house full” labels posted outside. The early morning rain seemed to have kept many people away – at least there was plenty of room in the paddock. I should say there were 50,000 spectators present when the teams took the field. By the way, Scott holds the distinction of having appeared in more Derby games than any player on record. There were a few rattles and a big display of club favours, but except for the extra attendance of ambulance men and policemen, it was just an ordinary match day.”
