Jack Westby, the Blackburn Rovers player, returns to Liverpool’s defence for the return Cup-tie with Wrexham at the Racecourse on Saturday, and it is odds on Jack Balmer, who made his international debut at the Racecourse, coming back to the attack.
Secretary-Manager Mr. George Kay states that there is a possibility of Tom Bush being available, and as Westby has often played centre half for the Rovers, the pivotal choice rests between these two and Eric Keen.
For the rest the team is practically unchanged, but there are 14 names in the list. The County Combination side will be at Anfield, with Carlton providing the opposition.
Liverpool (from): Alf Hobson, Fred Williams, Roy Guttridge, Jack Westby, Harry Kaye, Tom Bush, Eric Keen, Jack Pilling, Dick Dorsett, Willie Fagan, Jack Balmer, Cyril Done, Fred Haycock, Michael Hulligan.
Liverpool Reserves: Morris, Kenneth Seddon, Jack Macdonald, Bob Arnold, Halpin, Jack Campbell, Billy Hall, Les Shannon, Arthur Shepherd, Stan Palk, Ernest Rothwell.
