  • Liverpool Courier:
    First – After half an hour’s play the ball was got through in the softest possible fashion, Robinson being credited with the point.
    Second – Shortly afterwards another soft goal followed, the ball cannoning off a Port Vale player to Robinson, who, although standing in an offside position, was thereby placed onside, and who scored easily.
    Third – Shortly before half-time Raybould scored a splendid goal for his side.
    Fourth – Parkinson adding a fourth from close range.
    Fifth – Early in the second half Cox secured the fifth after Robinson had struck the crossbar.
    Sixth – Robinson, after committing a glaring foul, which the referee failed to notice, scored the sixth goal.
    Seventh – Parkinson headed the seventh.
    Eighth – Cox, with a brilliant individual effort, put on the climax by scoring the eighth and last goal of the day.
