Hot pace at Wrexham


September 8, 1941
The pace in the match at Wrexham had been so fast during the first half that all the players visibly tired before the end came, with the home side worthy winners.

Liverpool’s defence, while never relaxing its vigilance, could not stand up to the cleverer, sinuous tactics of Tim Rogers, Gordon Bremner and Wilson Jones. The first two of these players with Arsenal associations, dove tailed as a wing like mutual mind-readers.

There were two penalties against the Anfielders for “hands,” and Mr. Hartles firmly refused to admit a third.

Alf Hobson underwent some severe testing, and it was good to see the way he stopped the second spot kick. Billy Liddell and Cyril Done were Liverpool’s best forwards, and Ray Lambert tackled well at left back but was often outmanoeuvred.
