  • - Farrell scored after just 15 seconds as the Liverpool Echo reported: "This goal came after exactly 15 seconds’ play only three men touching the ball before it was in the back of the net. This was a sensational start to the league career at inside right to Farrell, and there is no doubt it was a winder shot which did the trick. From Wainwright to Powell and then Wainwright ran in inside-left to draw Hughes and four yards outside the penalty area slipped the ball square along the floor to his right for Farrell to run in at top pace and crack a glorious foot shot into the top corner of the net. Such was the force of the shot, which literally flashed by the driving Sidlow that it struck the iron net support and bounced right back into play."
