Key note: “Although it took them 70 minutes to prise open a resolute Blackpool defence, Liverpool invariably gave the impression that they had sufficient in hand to win last night’s Lancashire Senior Cup first round tie at Anfield. In fact they would have forged ahead in the first half, despite a tendency to play too close, had it not been for the splendid goalkeeping of Gordon West. Blackpool’s giant 17-year-old youth international.” (Liverpool Echo: November 9, 1960)
