October 14, 1950
Key note: “The Hawthorns was bathed in sunshine with the conditions for football well nigh perfect. It was significant that there was only one director in the Liverpool party which travelled down. That was chairman Mr. George Richards. Liverpool had Balmer and Stubbins back in the side. Cyril Sidlow was still recovering from influenza so Ashcroft got another turn in goal. It was a lucky point Liverpool scored, for up to the goal they had never been dangerous. The Albion should have had the game well sealed up long before that. It was Liverpool’s defence which made this draw possible.” (Liverpool Echo: October 14, 1950)
