Monday, January 9 – 1939
Herman Van den Berg, Liverpool’s South African outside-left, who underwent an operation for cartilage removal just before Christmas, resumed training at Anfield today.
Dirk Kemp, the Reds’ South African goalkeeper, who played such a brilliant game against Luton Town in Saturday’s cup-tie, went to bed immediately after the match, suffering from influenza. It is expected he will be up again tomorrow.
Tom Bush and Berry Nieuwenhuys, who were injured in the cup game, are going on well and both are expected to be fit for Saturday’s visit to Charlton Athletic.
Ray Lambert, the young centre half, was injured when playing for the “A” team at Lancaster, on Saturday, and it was feared he had sustained a fracture. He has, however, been examined by the specialist, who finds there is no fracture.
