Mr. George Kay, manager of Liverpool, will be forced to call on a number of his young stars for the North Regional match against Bury at Gigg Lane in Saturday.
He will include only two “guest” players – Jackson, of Everton, and Turner, of Charlton – while of his Services boy only Bob Paisley and Stan Eastham will be available. However, there is distinct promise among the young players, and Liddell, Palk, Lambert, Done and Spicer will lack nothing when it comes to experience. The exact constitution of the team is not yet known.
