Liverpool will have Ramsden, their pre-war full back, in the side which meets Preston North End at Deepdale on Saturday in a League championship game.
Liverpool are making a big bid for championship honours and have a good chance of pulling it off. At the moment they stand third, one point behind Manchester United for the same number of matches, and two points behind the leaders (Blackpool), who have played two games more. A win at Preston, which is not out of the question, would be a big help to Liverpool’s aspirations.
Ramsden, on leave, comes in at left half. He is an infrequent visitor here these days, this being only his second appearance in two seasons. As Berry Nieuwenhuys is not available Liddell crosses over to the right wing and Haycock moves up to inside left, with Palk on the extreme wing. Guttridge, now recovered from his leg injury, resumes at full back.
Team: – Alf Hobson, Roy Guttridge, Ray Lambert, Harry Kaye, Fred Finney, Bernard Ramsden, Billy Liddell, Jack Balmer, Cyril Done, Fred Haycock, Stan Palk.
