Sam Bartram back between the posts

January 8, 1941
Providing the Services’ players can get leave, Liverpool hope to field pretty much the same side as last Saturday in the return Lancashire Senior cup-tie with Everton, at Goodison Park, this week-end. One change will be the inclusion of Bartram, now back from a short leave, in goal in place of Billy Teasdale.

At left full back they hope to again have the services of Owen of Tranmere Rovers, who has played two grand games in the last two weeks at Anfield. If the side can infuse a little more vim into the attack.

Everton will have to pull out their best so hang on to their goal lead. Forward weaknesses were Liverpool’s undoing in the first meeting. There will have to be a more concentrated effort if Tommy Jones and company are to be outwitted this time;

Team; Sam Bartram, Robert Stuart, Arthur Owen, Ray Lambert, Norman Turner, Eddie Spicer, Berry Nieuwenhuys, Bob Paisley, Willie Fagan, Stan Palk, Billy Liddell.

Liverpool “A” have been doing extremely well this season. They have lost only one game so far, and last week beat Everton “A” 4-1 at Goodison Park.
