October 10, 1936
Key note: “Hanson made the goals possible in this strangely varied game in which Liverpool, after being so poor, rose to great heights and actually took the lead at 3-2. Goalkeeping errors were costly; Cooper and Dabbs were masterly; Rogers, in his keen endeavour, became outside right and pitched head first into the crowd. Hobson was badly damaged in the last minutes in stopping Camsell getting a goal from four yards’ distance.” (Liverpool Echo: October 10, 1936)
