Lancashire League

Liverpool 5 - 0 Fairfield

Notes

  • - Liverpool’s second goal is usually credited to McLean, as per the Post. However the Mercury says his shot was deflected and the Courier clarifies it further. “A foul against the visitors was well taken by McLean, who placed the ball in the goal mouth and in trying to clear one of the Fairfield players put into his own net.” Clearly this must be an own goal, since McLean could not have scored directly from the free-kick.
