Preston defender George Ross played in all three cup matches in the space of 10 days.
"They were all ding-dong contests, real thrillers. It was fantastic, a true FA Cup epic. And they are magic memories. In total we played Liverpool five times that season with two games in the league. They beat us both times, but not in the cup. In fact we became such mates with the Liverpool players after those five games that we had a good few games of golf with them in the months after."
