Chester “cooked”

Monday, May 26 – 1941
Liverpool’s manager, Mr. George Kay, made the experiment at Sealand-road, Chester, of playing young Dennis Cooke, his reserve centre-half, at centre-forward. Cooke not only scored, but helped materially in enabling the Reds to upset Chester’s non-stop run in convincing style. Liverpool won 6-1.

The game was a triumph for Cyril Done, who operated inside left and bagged three goals. Billy Liddell scored his usual – like Done he seems to score in every game – and Doug Cole put through his own goal for the sixth. Dick Yates scored Chester’s solitary point in a game which was rather one-sided, but which produced much entertaining football.
