George Poland to keep goal at Anfield

Friday, August 18 – 1939
Poland, the former Wrexham goalkeeper, is to keep goal for Liverpool in the Jubilee match against Everton at Anfield to-morrow. Arthur Riley dislocated a little finger in the trial on Wednesday and though the injury is rather painful it is not expected that Riley will be out of the game as long as was at first anticipated.

The team to oppose Everton is: – George Poland, Jim Harley, Bernard Ramsden, Matt Busby, Tom Bush, James McInnes, Berry Nieuwenhuys, Phil Taylor, Willie Fagan, Jack Balmer, Herman Van den Berg.
