Tuesday, May 5 – 1942
Liverpool have arranged to play Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday week, May 16, in a League game. If, as seems likely, Liverpool beat Chester this weekend, they meet the winner of the Manchester United v Blackburn Rovers tie in the semi-final of the Lancashire Cup on May 23. The semi-final will be decided by one game only. The final is on May 30, and there is every chance it may be between Liverpool and Everton, which would make a grand finale to wind up the season.
