  • Storer, Goldie, Wilkie, McCartney, McQue, Cleghorn, McCowie, Michael, Allan, Holmes, Bradshaw.

    The half-time score was 1-1.

    Referee : Mr. J. McGill.

    Joe McQue had a goal disallowed because he scored direct from a free-kick. At the time the laws of the game decreed that all free-kicks were classed as /indirect'.

    The match-report in the Mercury newspaper was very critical of goalkeeper Harry Storer's effort to prevent the Burnley goal, recording that "he never attempted to get to it".
