Liverpool Reserves fall at Anfield

January 30, 1939
Leeds United 3, Liverpool 0.
Liverpool played good football for the first 20 minutes at Anfield, but afterwards faded away and in the end were a well beaten side. Arthur Riley played a good game in goal and was in no way to blame for the heavy defeat.

The backs, Keith Peters and Matt Fitzsimmons, also put up a stiff resistance, but the halves were overrun and were unable to assist the forwards, of whom Ted Harston and George Paterson were best.

For Leeds, Reg Savage proved a grand custodian, while George Milburn and George Scaife rarely put a foot wrong. In contrast to Liverpool, the visitors’ forwards showed a nice sense of combination. Harry Sutherland, Arthur Buckley, and John Browning (own goal) were the scorers.
