Bradshaw and Riley back for the local derby


January 1, 1936
Liverpool will field a strong side for their big Merseyside “Derby” match against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday. As foreshadowed exclusively in The Evening Express, Tom Bradshaw, the Scottish international centre-half, and Arthur Riley, the South African international goalkeeper, have recovered from their injuries, and will play. This is grand news for the Reds.

On current form there is no greater centre half-back in the country than Bradshaw, who is the “key” man in Liverpool’s fine rearguard, while Riley is among the leading goalkeepers. Two other changes are made in the side. Ted Savage, the former Lincoln City right half back, comes back in place of Rogers following injury and a successful trial spin with the reserves. Savage has played some excellent games this season, and it is encouraging to think that he is returning to such a big game.

Robert Glassey, the young North-Eastern product, who has scored two goals in three first team matches this season, is once again preferred to Hodgson at inside left. Glassey will be making his debut in the Merseyside “Derby” games. All the bookable seats for this game have been sold, but there is room for more than 12,000 in the stands for spectators who pay at the turnstiles.

Liverpool: – Arthur Riley, Tommy Cooper, Ernest Blenkinsop, Ted Savage, Tom Bradshaw, Jimmy McDougall, Berry Nieuwenhuys, Vic Wright, Fred Howe, Robert Glassey, Lance Carr.

Alf Hanson, the Liverpool outside-left, who was injured in the match against Brentford, is to undergo an operation for cartilage trouble immediately.
