April 3, 1946
Key note: “Liverpool, the better team in a not-so-thrilling game at Anfield defeated Southport 2-0 in the semi-final of the Liverpool Senior Cup. Done got both the goals, and the nearest Southport came to reducing the deficit was when a shot by Holland was deflected by Ashcroft against the upright and bounced away to safety. It was encouraging to see Done more like his old self, even though he fell away somewhat in the second half. His second goal was as good a one as he has ever got.” (Liverpool Echo: April 4, 1946)
