Key note: “Liverpool rounded off the League season with a display of sheer delight against Q.P.R. at Anfield this afternoon. With Europe as the target, they played smoothly and impressively against visitors who played their part in a very entertaining match.
After the Q.P.R. players had left the pitch (end of play) the Liverpool boys lined up to receive the Fair Play Trophy presented to them by League secretary, Alan Hardaker.”
