Liverpool Football Club have decided to hold a public practice match at Anfield next Saturday. This will take the place of the proposed five-a-side tournament.
Manager George Kay states that the main object of the trial will be to show the club followers what a fine array of young talent has been got together.
Mr. Kay will field a team composed of former “A” team players – lads like Billy Liddell, Harry Kaye, Ray Lambert, Stan Palk, and Dennis Cooke – against a side of young players who have been attending the weekly evening training classes at Anfield.
Altogether Mr. Kay hopes to include about 30 players in the game – scheduled for 3.15 p.m. – for the teams will be switched about from time to time, so that everyone will have “a feel of the ball.”
