Tuesday, August 18 – 1942
Liverpool will not hold any public trials this season, but tests are progressing apace in private games. Another of these will take place on Saturday, when the ‘A’ team will be on view, along with a few of the seniors who desire to have a “run out.” Mr. George Kay, the club’s manager, will also take the opportunity to give a run to those applicants who are unable to take part in the mid-week trials.
Mr. Kay tells me he has had many applications from all parts of Lancashire and North Wales and many of these applicants will be given a trial on Saturday.
Berry Nieuwenhuys, the club’s South African star, now in the RAF, will, I understand, be available for the club’s opening game on August 29. Berry’s wife, during the week-end, presented him with a daughter.
