  • - Leslie Edwards at the Liverpool Echo saw A'Court's fantastic potential when watching him in only his fourth game for Liverpool against Bolton at Anfield on 4 March 1953: "With A'Court showing unmistakable signs of football genius - on this first look at him I rate him as outstanding of the new boys, both for courage and ability - the Liverpool attack must continue to succeed."

    Edwards was also impressed by Roy Saunders, making his fifth appearance for the club: "I have never seen a greater contribution of sheer graft than came from Saunders. He must as strong in the tackle as any player in the game. And how tireless! Besides his link with the attack when his shot hit the bar, he did sufficient to show that the material he possesses can be developed."
