Vital Cup game for Everton

January 15, 1943 Everton face their most important Merseyside “Derby” game of the war period tomorrow when they go to Anfield to oppose Liverpool in their return War Qualifying Competition game. Should Everton fail to win, their position will give rise to deep concern. Last season it is […]

Liverpool’s thirteen

January 12, 1943 Secretary-manager Mr. George Kay has thirteen names on his team sheet for the return Merseyside “Derby” with Everton due for Anfield on Saturday in connection with the War Cup Qualifying Competition.. Arthur Shepherd, the young professional who scored at Goodison Park, will not be available, […]

Youngsters star in Reds “derby”

January 11, 1943 Young discoveries were the stars of the third of the season’s Merseyside “Derby” games, when Liverpool once again emphasised their claim to the title of Merseyside “champions” by beating old rivals Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park on Saturday. The value of the coaching and graduation […]

The Third Everton v Liverpool test

January 8, 1943 Merseyside’s third big “Derby” game of the season between Everton and Liverpool will be staged at Goodison Park tomorrow. It will be the first “leg” of their pairing in the Cup Qualifying Competition, the return being schedule for Anfield the following week. In the league […]

Derby preparations

January 5, 1943 Secretary-manager Mr. George Kay, of the Reds, is busy gathering his forces for the first of the War Cup “Derby” games with Everton, which is scheduled for Goodison Park on Saturday. One problem – that of centre half – is solved, for Westby, of Blackburn […]

Richard Dorsett did it

January 4, 1943 Liverpool had a terrific battle at The Racecourse before they managed to conquer Wrexham by the only goal. Dick Dorsett got the winner in the first half of a game which can be described as a grim and relentless struggle throughout. It was a day […]

Swing it Reds

January 1, 1943 If Liverpool will learn the lesson of last Saturday’s game when they dropped a point at Anfield to Wrexham they will “swing it” when they face the Welshmen again at The Racecourse tomorrow. Liverpool kept it all too close last Saturday, and so cramped their […]

Reds for Wrexham

December 29, 1942 Westby, the Blackburn Rovers player, returns to Liverpool’s defence for the return Cup-tie with Wrexham at the Racecourse on Saturday, and it is odds on Jack Balmer, who made his international debut at the Racecourse, coming back to the attack. Secretary-Manager Mr. George Kay states […]

A sixth double for Liverpool?

December 24, 1942 Liverpool need only one point from their visit to Tranmere Rovers tomorrow to make sure of their position as runners-up to Blackpool in the League. One thing the Reds can complete – their sixth double of the season, and that, in itself, will be an […]

Reds newcomers

December 22, 1942 Liverpool will have the assistance of two newcomers for the Christmas holiday matches. They are Steve Hughes, the amateur centre-half from New Brighton, who will be in the district, and Jimmy Logie, the Arsenal inside forward. Hughes was always a tower of strength to the […]

Thrills at Anfield

October 5, 1942 As I anticipated Liverpool duly preserved their unbeaten record and completed their “double” by beating Bury at Anfield. The Reds won 5-2, but the score was not a true reflection of the game. Give each club another five goals apiece and you would be nearer […]

A second double for Liverpool?

October 2, 1942 I shall be surprised if Liverpool fail to record their second “double” of the season tomorrow. Having conquered Bury 4-1 at Gigg Lane, they should be capable of pulling off the second “leg” and so preserving their unbeaten record. Danger lies in taking things too […]

Jack Balmer may play

September 30, 1942 Jack Balmer, Liverpool’s English international forward, will probably make his first appearance of the season this week-end. Jack has been named among the 13 players from which the team to face Bury at Anfield will be selected. Balmer was injured when playing for the Western […]
