The first half season championship of the Liverpool County Combination has boiled down to a fight between Marine and Liverpool, and the meeting at Anfield on Saturday between them should provide a thrilling tussle. Unfortunately, Marine will be minus Hannah and Welsby, their usual backs, the team being selected from:
F. Foster, G. Atkinson, H. Cheers, N. Pellatt, F. Edwards, S. Dachler, M. McPeake, D. Craig, H. Macauley, E. Lee, D. Fenton, W. Bretton, S.O. Else (someone else).
