Liverpool win the Liverpool Cup

May 13, 1943
Although Everton won the second leg of the Liverpool Senior Cup, 3-2 at Goodison Park, last night, Liverpool take the trophy because on the aggregate in the two games they had scored 6 goals to 4. It was a good game, and Everton taken their chances in the first half they would have held quite a good lead at the interval.

After Everton had scored two goals Lawton missed an easy chance. Then Stevenson shot straight at Hobson, so instead of being in the lead on the aggregate they had only two goals to their credit at the interval. They had deserved their lead for they were the more accomplished side, but the second half Liverpool called the tune, and they went on to get level (2-2) shortly after the hour.

Everton at this point could do little with the Liverpool defence in which Rist was outstanding. Near the end, however, McKillop who plays for the Rangers gave Everton a victory shot. There was a good attendance and the football was entertaining. This is the first time Everton have beaten Liverpool in their meeting this season.

The cup was presented by Mr. Langford, of Preston.

Everton: George Burnett, George Jackson, Norman Greenhalgh, Stan Bentham, Tommy Jones, John Humphreys, Tom McKillop, Archie Livingstone, Tommy Lawton, Alex Stevenson, Jimmy McIntosh.
Liverpool: Alf Hobson, Alf Pope, Jack Westby, Joe Johnson, Frank Rist, Harry Kaye, Jack Campbell, George “Spud” Murphy, Cyril Done, Willie Fagan, Michael Hulligan.
Referee: Mr. M. Cunningham (Liverpool).
