Opposition goals


  • - A triple suspension threat rocked Liverpool's title assault when referee Kingscott charged William Goldie for "discourteous language" after the conclusion of the game along with his teammates Alex Raisbeck and John Walker for refusing to divulge their comrade's name to him. Bill Goldie was banned for the last three matches of the season when Liverpool were competing for the league title. Raisbeck and Walker escaped punishment but were "severely reprimanded."
