A local Derby in June

Monday, May 5 – 1941
Merseyside is to have a real Whitsun football treat. Everton and Liverpool have agreed to meet each other on Whit Monday, June 2, as I suggested some days ago, and the match will take place at Goodison Park. It is possible the game will be the final of the Liverpool Senior Cup, but in any event it will be a North Regional game. The Liverpool Cup is the only honour left for our clubs to annex this season. Everton lost interest in the Lancashire Cup on Saturday when being beaten by Burnley in the game which made football history. (Evening Express, 05-05-1941)
