Merseyside is making ample provision for Services football again this season. Last season’s competitions were an unqualified success, but it is expected that in the season beginning on Saturday even more clubs will compete in the League competitions to be run in eight sections, with the H.D. Hughes Cup as the ultimate goal, and in the Liverton Cup Competition which begins in January.
Once again Mr. Ted Wortley, who is hon. Treasurer of Liverpool County FA, and who is such a power so far as football is concerned in Home Guard circles, is taking over the duties of hon. secretary, and that ensures success. Ted is a great worker.
Captain F.S. Milligan will be chairman of the committee with Mr. Richard Lawson Martindale, chairman of Liverpool Football Club, vice chairman. Any clubs wishing to compete should contact Mr. Wortley immediately. Just another word – the services of referees for these competitions are needed urgently. Will any volunteer please communicate with Mr. Wortley?
