Anfield | Wednesday 21 September 1960

Liverpool 4 - 2 International XI

Notes

  • Testimonial for: Billy Liddell
  • Info: Liddell also played for the opposition and scored one goal. Referee Arthur Ellis played much more time than the 90 minutes in an effort to get Liddell to round the game off with another goal.
  • Slater, Molyneux, Moran, Wheeler, White, Milne, A'Court, Hunt, Hickson, Harrower, Liddell.

    International XI: Bert Trautmann (Man City), Jimmy Armfield (Blackpool), Walton (Preston), Setters (Man. Utd.), Dugdale (Aston Villa), Don Revie (Leeds), McIlroy (Burnley), Nat Lofthouse (Bolton), Quixall (Man. Utd), Sir Thomas Finney (Preston legend).

    Sir Stanley Matthews (Blackpool) was scheduled to play but did not participate. This was something Matthews did regularly: he would be billed to play in testimonials and benefit games so as to increase the crowd and revenue for the player concerned as he was the major draw in English football and would put thousands on the gate of any game in which he appeared.
