  • - Arthur Goddard was a stalwart of the Liverpool team and inspired a young boy to compose this little poem about him after watching him play against Wolves.
    Goddard stood upon the field.
    No Wolf was there to mind him,
    And as he shot the "keeper“ reeled
    And found the ball behind him.
    A. Vickers, 11, Benedict Street, Bootle.

    -Jack Cox was man-marked throughout the first half by half-back Williams who Echo described was like a dog following his master. The crowd picked up on this and shouted: 'Is that your brother, Cox?' and 'Do you know the chap, Jack?'
