Jim Harley back in action

January 17, 1945
Liverpool name 12 players from whom will be selected their team to meet Tranmere Rovers at Anfield on Saturday. The best news is that which I gave you two days ago – that Jim Harley, the Scottish international, has recovered from the injury received in Belgium and will be at right back. This releases Jack Blood, who is included among the half-backs.

Otherwise the team will be unchanged from that which defeated Stockport last Saturday. Taylor will open at centre-forward, but no doubt the old “switch” with Don Welsh will be employed as and when occasion demands.

Liverpool (from): Alf Hobson, Jim Harley, Ron Gutteridge, Harry Kaye, Laurie Hughes, Jack Blood, Jack Pilling, Jack Campbell, Berry Nieuwenhuys, Phil Taylor, Don Welsh, Bill Kinghorn.
