Carlton and Liverpool remain favourites for the championship of the Liverpool County Combination, and both are engaged in viral away games on Saturday. Carlton go to Goodison Park to face the vastly improved Everton, who include Young, the Arsenal back.
Liverpool will be at Crosby facing Marine, who include Critchley, a forward from Woking, and McVinney, from Whiston. Automac still have an outside chance of honours, but must win at Randle. Napiers receive Liverpool University, and St. Teresa’s are at home to Rootes.
