  • - The penalty from which Alfred West put Liverpool ahead in the first half was awarded after Jimmy Lindsay had tripped Sam Raybould. West strick the ball firmly down the middle with Bury goalkeeper Hugh Monteith ducking out of the way! It initially looked as if Sam Raybould would take the spot-kick but the home crowd was baying for Alfred West to take it and the crowd got its wish! West had never taken a penalty for Liverpool before whereas Raybould had taken ten, of which he had missed four, including one late in the away match at Goodison Park on Good Friday 1st April 1904.

    Bobby Robinson had to leave the field injured in the second half after falling awkwardly following a challenge by Jimmy Lindsay. With Liverpool already 3-0 up at the time this happened there was no pressure on the inside-forward to return to the field of play although he did not feature in Liverpool's final match of the season against Blackburn Rovers a week later.
