September 11, 1939
Liverpool players who are available are still reporting to the ground day by day in case they are required. No training is being done, and the club is waiting for official guidance before they make any definite move.
Everton are doing the same except that in their case only the players who live in the immediate neighbourhood are calling in at the ground. Several of those who live at a distance have gone home to await further orders.
