November 20, 1944
I am assured that Liverpool had sufficient chances at Gigg Lane to have won three matches, but they frittered them away and so lost 2-0 – their first war-time defeat at the ground. The Reds were “buried” in every sense, for the player who got both goals was Norman Berry – one in each half. Liverpool never touched anything like their Maine Road form, although young Terry Garner was quite a success until tiring.
The attack, however, was unbalanced, and this seemed to affect Don Welsh, who could not get accuracy with his finishing. Bury were the more workmanlike team, playing with any amount of enthusiasm and not a little skill.
