Thursday, August 10 – 1939
Liverpool are making an effort to solve the problem about the distribution of FA Cup final tickets. Any supporter who can produce 18 programmes of first team matches is guaranteed a final ticket if Liverpool appear at Wembley.
There is a lot of “if” about it, but the scheme must be admired because it is a genuine effort to deal with a vexed question.
But … if every regular supporter of the club does collect his programmes and Liverpool do get t Wembley the guarantee would be broken, because Liverpool would not have sufficient tickets to go around!
Liverpool officials and players are at Grange-over-Sands today for the annual outing.
