May 1, 1946
Key note: “Liverpool won the Liverpool Senior Cup by waiting as they say in racing, for it was not until the second half that they really rose to the occasion to beat their friends from across the park. It was a game of two periods, for Everton were the better side in the opening season, with the Anfielders capturing the second half. It was an excellent game, for there was much good football in it, plenty of thrills and incidents. The Lord Mayor presented the cup to the winners.” (Liverpool Echo: May 2, 1946)
