Willie Fagan, Liverpool’s Scottish inside-forward, will make his first appearance of the season next Saturday, when he plays against Manchester City in the Football League game at Anfield.
In addition, Manager Mr. George Kay expects that Tom Bush, the tall centre-half and regular member of the pre-war side, will be available. Tom, who has been playing with Brighton and Hove Albion, is expecting to be home on leave.
Fagan has had two games with Northampton Town – scoring in each match – while he played in the Glasgow “Derby” for Celtic against Rangers.
Bob Batey, experienced Preston North End half-back, will again be on duty, and Mr. Kay expects to have the services of this valuable player regularly. Dick Dorsett, of the famous Wolves team, will also be seen in action, and Hobson, of Chester, continues in goal in a side which shows the ideal blend of experience and youth.
Liverpool (from): Alf Hobson, Charlie Fazackerley, Ray Lambert, Harry Kaye, Tom Bush, Bob Batey, Eddie Spicer, Billy Liddell, Willie Fagan, Cyril Done, Dick Dorsett, Stan Palk.
