Sam Bartram back between the posts

Wednesday, January 8 – 1941 Providing the Services’ players can get leave, Liverpool hope to field pretty much the same side as last Saturday in the return Lancashire Senior cup-tie with Everton, at Goodison Park, this week-end. One change will be the inclusion of Bartram, now back from […]

Boys of the Old Brigade

July 27, 1944 Here comes the “Boys of the Old Brigade” so far as Liverpool Football Club is concerned. Latest news from Anfield is that six of their pre-war stars will be available for next season – in addition to those pre-war players who have been regulars during […]

Two goals up

May 12, 1944 Liverpool should accomplish what they just failed to do last season – win the county trophy. Last term the Reds lost the cup although forcing a draw on the last day against Manchester United. They faced a two goal deficit that day. Tomorrow the boot […]

Liverpool’s young stars

December 31, 1943 The absence of three such stalwarts as Jack Balmer, Don Welsh, and Jack Westby is bound to make a difference to Liverpool in their return game with Wrexham at the Racecourse, but the Reds are fortunate that they have youngsters with experience as well as […]

Missing stars for Liverpool F.C.

December 30, 1943 Liverpool will be handicapped by Services calls for their visit to Wrexham on Saturday in the War Cup Qualifying Competition. Stars like Jack Balmr, Don Welsh, and Jack Westby will participate in the Army match at Ayr, and so the Reds have to make a […]

Liverpool without Don Welsh at Anfield

December 21, 1943 Liverpool’s defence will be unchanged for their vital game with Tranmere Rovers at Anfield on Saturday, but they will be without Don Welsh in the attack. Against that, there is the possibility that Willie Fagan may be available, and possibly Michael Hulligan and Arthur Shepherd, […]

Liverpool beat Tranmere Rovers 9-2

December 20, 1943 Liverpool were much too powerful for Tranmere Rovers at Prenton Park. A 9-2 victory away from home is handsome enough, but it might have been greater. This win brings back Liverpool into the championship fight, a fight which has been left open by Blackpool’s inability […]

Local reserves for Liverpool F.C.

December 3, 1943 Liverpool will have t struggle hard to win at Turf Moor tomorrow, for Burnley are strong battlers on their own ground and gave Blackpool a fright recently. Beattie, the Preston forward who has been in brilliant form since he linked up with the Anfielders, will […]

The junior derby

Thursday, October 14 – 1943 Many people who crossed the park last Saturday to see the Liverpool and Everton reserves clash at Anfield instead of watching the seniors were well rewarded, for I am assured that the juniors put up a classic show. Liverpool won 2-1, but the […]

Sidney Grossman’s benefit match

May 4, 1943 Liverpool have decided to send their best available Reserve team to Cadby Hall, Penny-lane, on Saturday to play St. Teresa’s in a match for the benefit for Sidney Grossman, the Saints player who broke an ankle just after Christmas and who has been off work […]

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 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 […]
