Liverpool Reserves v Everton Reserves 3-1 (League match: October 1, 1932)


October 1, 1932
Key note: “The local ‘Derby’ at Anfield provided quite a large crowd with an encounter that was rich in incident, victory deservedly going to Liverpool by 3 goals to 1. Perhaps Everton were just a shade superior in the matter of constructive advance, yet Liverpool’s direct thrust proved the more beneficially because they (Liverpool) could produce the sharper accurate finish, although time and again, it was Riley’s custodianship that frustrated Everton. It was a game in which the honours went to the respective defence, Riley and Coggins contributing some fine work. The winners possessed the sounder defence, but Everton were the more consistent attackers, without getting the goals. Liverpool’s attacking strength came chiefly from the wings, where Taylor and McRorie, during the half-hour before the interval were the initiators of much of Liverpool’s danger.” (Liverpool Post and Mercury: October 3, 1932)
