Waine and Curtis drafted in

Wednesday, September 27 – 1916 In spite of victory at Preston, where Liverpool would have won very readily if the chances of getting simple goals had been taken, Liverpool have made alterations in their side for the Burnley game at Anfield on Saturday. They have brought a new […]

Liverpool win tough fight at Preston

September 25, 1916 The Anfielders added to their very useful and gratifying record on Saturday by taking a couple of points off Preston North End at Deepdale. In bagging this brace they perhaps got a little more than they deserved, for the Prestonians experienced all the ill-luck and […]

Ashcroft gets another chance

Wednesday, September 20 – 1916 It is worthy of note that last week in the Anfield attendance of 15,295 spectators there were nearly 3,000 soldiers – 1,304 wounded soldiers and 1,386 Tommies. All these men were admitted free, of course. Liverpool, in view of the clever game played […]

Liverpool beat Oldham at Anfield

September 18, 1916 There was plenty to interest the worker on Saturday. The football fare was generally keen, and always provided some point which might form a basis of discussion. For example, at Anfield we had Pagnam penalised for what I imagine the referee termed “ungentmanly conduct.” If […]

Lewis to make his debut

Friday, September 15 – 1916 Football to-morrow should be bright and brotherly, if not brief. We have some excellent fare in prospect, for Oldham have always adopted the rousing game, and latterly have, through the agency of Dave Wilson, Charlie Roberts, Woodger, and Donnachie, brought into their game […]

Harry Lewis makes his Anfield bow

Thursday, September 14 – 1916 Team selections are more fascinating than ever before in the history of football. Clubs have so many strings to draw upon and so many new faces to introduce nowadays, that the team-sheets are scanned with much keenness. And no club has a better […]

Locals head for the shrimperies

Friday, September 11 – 1916 Here’s a game that will be relished by Liverpool and Southport followers. I find, from inquiries sent me regarding fares, that quite a goodly number of people are going from Liverpool to the shrimperies – it’s a trumpery journey for an “away match […]

Share of points at Hanley

September 11, 1916 Liverpool paid their first League visit to the Burslem Port Vale Club on Saturday, when they shared the points in an interesting if rather rough-and-tumble encounter. The present ground of the popular Pottery organisation is right in the heart of the busy town of Hanley, […]

Port Vale next up for Liverpool

Friday, September 8 – 1916 It is an age since Liverpool went to Port Vale in their Second Division wanderings, and Port Vale will give their side a good game tomorrow at the Old Recreation Ground. The sprinkling of Wolverhampton Wanderers’ players in the home side guarantees that […]

Great start by new Liverpool

September 4, 1916 We have got accustomed to stylish football from young Bamber, and if he follows up Saturday’s style of play with many more samples his name will ring through the football firmament as the star find of three seasons. He was well tested by Bolton’s wing […]

Ahead of the season premiere

Friday, September 1 – 1916 There is good news for members of the Anfield fraternity. Tomorrow, when the opening of the season will be celebrated in “the usual manner,” they will have the pleasure of seeing that excellent left wing – Smith and Vizard. There was a doubt […]

All ready for 1916-17 season

August 30, 1916 Liverpool opens the local season with a home game against Bolton Wanderers, who, although minus some well-known names, have gathered round them some good players, notably Hodgkiss and Hurst, the ex-Southport men. Liverpool’s side has been chosen, and shows little change from last season’s bustling […]

Annual trial game at Anfield

Friday, August 25 – 1916 The rainfall will have made the Anfield ground suitable for football, and there is promise of another enjoyable trial game in our city. The sides chosen were discussed yesterday, and there is need for anything further than a repeat of the elevens which […]

Little about the new players

Thursday, August 24 – 1916 Liverpool F.C. have one trial game only. Saturday is the appointed day, and as the club has but one game, and has interesting sides matches, the attendance is certain to be big. The game should prove an even one – the formation of […]

A huge crowd is expected

Friday, May 5 – 1916 The fall of rain will be welcomed by the footballers who are once again coming to Charity’s aid. To-morrow the ground should not be dried up, and there will not be any dust thrown up, although the game will certainly be what is […]

The sixth time of asking

Thursday, May 4 – 1916 Everton and Liverpool meet (on Saturday) for the sixth time this season, and the game and its cause will create a very big crowd and a capital game. The players will have nothing at stake beyond their record, and from a local club […]
