BLACKBURN ROVERS 3 EVERTON 2 (Game 902)

EVERTON UPSET AT BLACKBURN.
THE ROVERS REPLY.
The failure of the Evertonians to rise to the occasion at Ewood Park on Saturday, came as a great disappointment. It was generally anticipated that they would at least hold their own with Blackburn Rovers, whose performances so far this season have not inspired too much confidence. Up to the interval it is true that the visitors were rather the better side in the matter of close passing and combination, but there was a fatal shortcoming about their finishing touches. The Rovers on the other hand, were obviously “out for blood,” and their rushes at times completely overwhelmed the Everton halves and backs, who, however, kept them at bay until half-time. The second period showed a distinct improvement in the development of the Blackburn attack, and having once gained the lead they never looked like being beaten. Indeed to the closing stages they were quite masters of the situation, and it was only the two clever goals scored by Clennell in the closing stages of the struggle that palliated the defeat. The game certainly finished in hurricane fashion three goals being registered in the last few minutes of the contest. The opening point came from Holland, who beat Fern with a very fast shot, and this was followed by a very pretty piece of individual work on the part of Hawksworth, Everton, who had Page damaged by violent contact with the ball on the point of the chin, and who were further handicapped by Harrison having to leave the field through leg trouble, replied gamely, and Clennell eventually reduced the lead with a goal from a free kick. To this Hawksworth replied with another goal gained in brilliant fashion, and he thus set the zeal of success upon his first appearance as centre forward. There was rather less than a minute to go when Clennell with self-like elusiveness dodged through his opponents and netted for the second time. As may be gathered the Everton forwards were never up to a point. The half-backs were not up to concert pitch, and the defenders were hard working throughout. The Rovers by their general style of play showed that there is a marked levelling up in course of peration, and their half-back line was especially good. Teams: - Blackburn Rovers: - Robinson goal, R. Walmsley, and Duckworth, backs, A. Walmsley, Smith and Bradshaw half-backs, Hodkinson, Byrom Hawksworth, Holland, and Kerr, forwards. Everton: - Fern, goal, Page, and Weller, backs, Fleetwood (Captain), Wareing, and Grenyer, half-backs, Chedgzoy, Kirsopp, Gault, Clennell, and Harrison forwards. Referee J.T. Howcroft.

CENTRAL LEAGUE (Game 9)
At Goodison Park, on Saturday, Everton again won by the odd goal in five. The visitors started in a confident style, but Everton were the first to score, through Slade. The Rovers played up strongly and not only equalised through Williams, but the same player gave them the lead before the interval, when the Rovers led by 2 goals to 1. On resumption of play Jones went outside right and Miller centre-forward. This change worked wonders, G.W. Jones playing a great game. Robinson equalised, the score and fifteen minutes from time Owen Williams converted a centre from Jones, giving his side the victory. Everton: - Bromilow, goal, Berwick and Evans, backs Peacock, Slade, and Hunter, half-backs Millar, A. Robinson, G.W. Jones, Rigsby, and J. Evans, forwards .
Lancashire Evening Post - Monday 03 November 1919
The Rovers made a return to something like pre-war form in their game with Everton at Ewood, and the victory will go a long way towards restoring th waning confidence in the side. The experiement of trying Hawksworth as leader of the attack was justified in every way, for the ex-Rochdale man played wonderfully well, and to a great extent was responsible for this, the third home success. always ready to swing the ball out to the wings - a move not apparent in the Rovers' line recently -he also proved himself a clever indivdualist with a fine turn of speed and much kill, one of the two goals he scored marking the conclusion of a fine solo effort. In this game at least some effective combination was seen, especially on the right wing, where Byroms' untiring efforts, coupled with the remarkable ball control and exceptional turn of speed of Hodkinson, made that portion of the Rovers' atatck a source of constant danger. YThe left wing was the side's weak spot for whilst Holland was useful Kerr proved rather slow. Considering his moves too long, with the result that he was unable to get the ball away before the attentions of Grenyer worried him to such an extent that his passing lacked direction
A Strong Line
The half-backs played a remarkably fine game compared with their poor exhibition last week. Bradshaw was especially noticeable with smart recoveries and clever footwork, his display at times being reminiscent of his earlier days. Nor were Percy Smith and Albert Walmsley at all behind their colleague in cleverness and resource. Both tackled cleanly and well, and the Everton front line was allowed very little latitude that was the case at Goodison Park. Smith continually fed Hawksworth in clever style, and the centre forward owed much of his success to the support he received from the halves, who in the second half at least turned every opportunity for constructive work to good account. Certainly the line has not been seen to better advantage this season. The backs, too, were sound.,in spite of an incident when both R. Walmsley slicking to his men in most effective fashion, whilst Duckworth seemed to have developed still further his almost uncanny faculty for always anticipating the flight of the ball. Clennel and Gault were a constant worry to the home defence, whilst Ducksworth found his stiffest proposition in Chedgzoy, who seemed a trifle too fast for the full back. In goal Robinson, as usual, did well, and was not to blame when Clennel scored from a free kick, as he was unsighted by number Rovers’ players, who were unable to see his frantic signals.
Everton Below Form
Everton as a side did not shine, though individually they were not bad. Page, after an accident was never really happy at back, whilst Harrison, who wrench his knee was of little service for some time before he walked off 15 minutes from the end. As we only to be expected, these two mishaps had their effect. Weller, single-handed, was no match for Hawksworth, and time after time it was left to Fern to avert danger. The Everton halves did well but were not so good as the home line, and had continually to be on thew watch for the lightning dashesd of Hodkinson and the centre forward. Clennell, Gault, and Kirsopp were the pick of the Everton forwards. The game all through illustrated the value of combination in the Rovers ranks and the traingle movements on the right were as good as the most critical could wish for. The ball was swung about in fine style, though in the opening period it was too often in the air. Both elevens erred in that respect, however, and also in poor shooting. It was pretty obvious too, that had the Rovers' marksmanship been up to the proper standard they might have had at least six goals. Both hawksworth and Holland on two occasions shot loosely, when well placed, though it ought to be mentioned that a greasy ball miliated to some extent against accurate work. The return to effectiveness of the Rovers' forward line was very pleasing. The younger men displayed less of their usual tendency to dash haphazardly about, and there was always a definite purprose behind their maneuvers which were carried out in a determined way. The example set by Hodkinson of opening out the game was speedily adopted by all, and the winger was always on the mark with his passes. Considered carefully if their exhibition was not of the flash-in-the-pan order, it would lead one to believe that the Rovers have at least rediscovered their true form.
EVERTON DEFEAT ROVERS.
Lancashire Evening Post - Monday 03 November 1919
For the second time Everton Reserves followed up their victory of 3-2 over Blackburn Rovers with a similar score. The home team had a strong side out, and Miller's electric runs and wise centres boded much trouble for the Rovers' defence who, although having three against them, did really well considering that their half-backs were not supporting their forwards in check, nor yet holding the Everton forwards in check. Sladew a recruit to Everton, opened the account thanks to blundering defence on the part of the Blackburn backs and half-backs. Williams scored an equalising point. Everton came again in the second half, and Robinson and Owen Williams scored the Rovers replying with one goal. Crabtree came out of the ordeal with honours; he was hard-worked and saved his side from a heavier defeat. The Rovers had but a scratch side, and Eddleston was the only forward worth special mention.
November 7 1919. The Liverpool Daily Post and Mercury
Owing to players being on the injured or sick list, the Everton directors delayed until last evening the selection of the team to meet Bradford City, at Goodison Park. Thompson, Macconnachie, Chedgzoy, and Harrison are injured, and Grenyer and Miller are on the sick list. It will be noted that interesting changes have been made in the half-back and forward lines. Brown comes in at right half-back and Fleetwood goes centre, and Wareing on the left. Forward G.W. Jones the Wrexham player, who had been playing centre forward in the Reserves, and who gave a fine display in the second half of the Centre League match last Saturday, is brought in on the right wing with Jefferis as his partner, while Kirsopp will lead the attack.
Monday 10 November 1919 Yorkshire Post
BRADFORD CITY RESERVES v. EVERTON RESERVES.
At Valley Parade, before about 2,000 spectator. The football never rose a high standard, and City in particulatar were weak near goal. At the end of half-a -hour the home side had scored through Stansfield, the City outride right, who, after beating the opposing back, shot into the net with a fine long left footed drive. Everton were more dangerous in the half, and a quarter of hour from the close Foulds headed past Heath, following a centre from the right. G. H.Sykes, a nephew of George Hirst, made his first appearance centre forward for the City. He has been a prolific scorer for Birstall Parish Church, the Bradford in the Alliance league, and now gave promising display, despite the lack of assistance from inside men. Probably more will be seen of this well-built youth.
EVERTON 4 BRADFORD CITY 1 (Game 903)
November 10 1919. The Liverpool Daily Post and Mercury.
EVERTON SMART WIN.
BRADFORD CITY OUTPLAYED.
The Everton side for the first meeting with Bradford City did not look a good one on paper, yet it sufficed to win a clever victory over the Yorkshire Club at Goodison Park. In fact the Everton forwards developed more strength and virility than for many weeks past, and the choice of reserves was fully justified. There could be no two opinions about Everton's superiority. They started and finished well, whereas the play of the Bradford side sagged completely before the end. In the opening stages the City had two clear and excellent chances of leading the scoring, but alertness and daring of Fern prevented the visitors from gaining an early goal. From this point Everton took charge of the game, and almost everything they attempted ended successfully. Rarely have Donnachie and Clennell displayed such excellent understanding, and Everton's first goal, scored at the end of ten minutes was the direct result of a happy blending of ideas, Donnachie's dexterous footwork made the opening and Clennell;s tenacity to helped him to get the ball and shoot hard from what appeared a decidedly difficult position. Goal number two came from a beautiful centre by Evans, who was making his first appearance with the seniors, and Clennell with a smart header, placed the ball into the net. Five after the interval Fox scored from a pass by Bond Fern failing to reach the ball, although he fell full length. A minute later another fine centre by Jones enabled Kirsopp to score a third point, and ten minutes from the end Boocock, in attempting to block the ball as it came from the Everton left wing, diverted it into his own goal. The changes in the Everton attack, although dictated by injuries to the regular players, worked admirably. Jones won his spurs, and if Saturday's display can be taken as a specimen of his usual work he has an excellent future. The Bradford City defence may not be first class, but Jones showed by his wise centres and neat footwork that he knows his business. With such a master of trickery as Jefferis, the Wrexham man should develop rapidly. Kirsopp made a useful leader, and was often dangerous with his first-time shots. Clennell and Donnachie adopted a forward and progressive policy that paid well. Fleetwood shouldered the big task of pivot with excellent results, and Both Weller and Page were sound and reliable. Ewart as usual made many spectacular clearances, although his judgement was rarely faulty. The Bradford backs were moderate, and the half-backs worked hard, but were outplayed by a superior attack. Failure to finish well was the chief fault of the Bradford forwards. Teams: - Everton: - Fern, goal, Page. and Weller backs, Brown Fleetwood (Captain), and Robinson, half-backs, Jones Jefferis, Kirsopp, Clennell, and Donnachie, forwards. Bradford City: - Ewart, goal, Potts, and Boocock, backs, Hargreaves, Storer, and Duckett half-backs, Bond, Fox, Walden, Quinn, and Norton, forwards.

It has not been generally noticed that Everton have this season credited themselves with a record in the First Division of the League. They are the only club in their section that has scored in every match to date. In the course of thirteen games the Blues have scored 28 goals, a total exceeded only by West Bromwich Albion and Manchester City, who, however, obtained eight of their total in one match, the Albion against Notts County and the City against Blackburn Rovers. Everton have scored at Goodison Park two goals against Chelsea, two against Bradford, two against West Bromwich Albion, and once against Sunderland two against the Arsenal, three against Blackburn Rovers, and four against Bradford City; while their scores in away games have been one at Chelsea, three at West Bromwich Albion, three at Sunderland, one at Highbury, and two against Blackburn. Thus Everton have scored sixteen goals at home and twelve away.
The Everton team selected last night oppose Bradford City at Bradford, on Saturday, is the same side that won at Goodison Park last week, viz- Fern, Page Weller, Brown, Fleetwood, Robinson, Jones (GW), Jefferis, Kirsopp, Clennell, Donnachie. The Reserves v Bradford City Reserves, at Goodison Park, is: - Mitchell, Berwick, Evans, Peacock, Slade, Williams, Howarth, Ritchie, Cameron, Rigsby, and Evans (J).
FAMOUS EVERTON CENTRE FORWARD
Sunday Post-Sunday 16 November 1919
Robbie Parker, the famous centre forward, formerly of Rangers and now with Everton, for which team he scored thirty-five goals in thirty-five League games few seasons ago, travelled from Liverpool to Ayr to act as the special representative of The Sunday Post the Ayr United v. Celtic match. Below gives an exclusive criticism the play and players. My Ayr visit brought back memories very much of a military nature, for it was at the "Auld Toon" where I serve with the well-known Ayrshire regiment, the Royal Scott Fusiliers. Whilst I was training I did not lose touch with the game, and was able to assist Morton, and got many games; out in Egypt and Palestine. where the British soldier has introduced football to such an extent that even the natives, down the wee colored laddies, are showing an enthuesiaun for the game which will in time, I think, lead to football becoming part of the national recreation. Would it not quaint to hear of some our famous players in days to come emigrating to the East to figure in the Jerusalem League, or Nile Valley Combination, or perhaps some of them "going to Jericho" Sounds really funny, does it not? And yet they are hot football out there. The attendance's at the military matches showed that, for the natives actually paid to get in. and they don't give anything for nothing in these countries. I would like mention that amongst brother Scots I met out there Georgie Livingstone, M'Dougal (Liverpool and Falkirk), Murray (Everton and Patrick Thistle). Strachan (Woolwich Arsenal), and then also I ran across Cuffe, the old Glossop player, who has now become attached Ayr. When I Left Liverpool on Friday I had ma doots football prospects in Scotland owing to the frost and fog, and leaving Glasgow, thickly enveloped was with the blackest fog 1 have seen for a time, to saying nothing of the intense frost, I wondered whether I should see any football at all. But halfway to Ary the sun commenced to shine, the atmosphere cleared, and a real transformation greeted me at the "Auld Toon," where I got word from Mr. T. Steene that the ground was quite playable.
He them went into the match report-for the record it finished 1-1

EVERTON SPLIT THE POINTS.
GOOD GAME AT BRADFORD.
PAGE, GOES IN GOAL FOR LAST SEVEN MINUTES.
In spite of the Valley Parade enclosure being two inches in snow, an excellent game was witnessed between Everton and Bradford City and a division of the points were perhaps a very fair reflex of the encounter. The conditions were of course, all against the finer phases of footwork, yet the pace was agreeably fast throughout and what was lacking in the way of accuracy in shooting was compensated for by the frequency with which shits were fired at the respective keepers. Both sets of backs found some difficulty in keeping their feet when tackling, and there were several nasty spills, though no really untoward accident. In the last few minutes of the game Walden and Fern were in collision, and the Evertonian had to be assisted from the ground suffering from an injury just beneath the knee. Page, who kept the breach successfully during an exciting finish, took his place. The game opened in promising fashion, and there were a number of rapid exchanges in which the powers of both Fern and Ewart were well tested. It was left to the City to open the ball after rather less than half-an-hour's going. The goal originally came from the left, where Marshall shot strongly and Fern, after fisting the leather away, was unable to prevent Logan netting. The visitors replied with promptitude through the agency of Jones, who centred admirably, and Ewart failing to gather the ball, Clennell put his side of equal terms. In the second period play was scarcely so good though there was still plenty of incident, and at times some little feeling. Jones, coming through again passed right across to Clennell, who put the ball into the net with his head. The Everton right winger followed this up with another brilliant run, and he met with his reward with a shot that struck the far upright and glanced into the net. The home forwards, forcing the pace, regaining some of the leeway through McIlvenny, who turned a pass from Logan to good account. It looked as though Everton had the game in hand when in the last seven minutes Walden running in, scored while in collision with the goalkeeper. All the Everton forwards played well, though Jones and Clennell were the two outstanding figures. The former created something of a sensation by his fine wing work. The halves were sound and the defence did well under great difficulties. Teams: - Bradford City: - Ewart, goal, Boocock, and Potts, backs, Duckett, Storer, and Hargreaves, half-backs, Marshall, McIlvenny, Walden, Logan, and Bond, forwards. Everton: - Fern, goal, Page, and Weller, backs, Brown, Fleetwood (Captain), and Robinson, half-backs, G.W. Jones, Jefferis, Kirsopp, Clennell, and Donnachie, forwards.

The result of the meeting between these teams at Goodsion Park on Saturday was identically the same as at Bradford on the previous Saturday –1 goal each. The ground was froshbound, and during the game several players were injured. Ten minutes from the final Wilkinson the visiting goalkeeper, had to leave the field through falling heavily after being charged by Cameron while holding the ball. In the first half play was fairly even, and it was not until five minutes before the interval that Myers opened the score for Bradford, who led at half-time. The second half went all in favour of Everton, who missed many chances. Eventually Robinson equalised fifteen minutes from time. On the run of the play Everton ought to have won easily, but the shooting was most erratic. Everton: - Mitchell, goal, Berwick, and Evans, backs, Peacock, Slade, and Williams, half-backs, Howarth, Ritchie, Cameron, Rigsby, and Evans, forwards.

EVERTON 3 BOLTON WANDERERS 3 (Game 905)
November 24 1919. The Liverpool Daily Post and Mercury
EVERTON DRAW AGAIN.
BOLTON'S CLEVER DISPLAY.
A division of the points was the best Everton could claim for their first game with Bolton Wanderers at Goodison Park, and truth to tell they were a lucky side not to be beaten outright. The final score was exactly the same as in the Everton-Bradford City game a week ago. The Bolton side was strengthened by the inclusion of Herbert of Stoke, who was signed by the Wanderers on Friday, but Everton's newcomer, Berwick, did not answer the same purpose. The meeting provided a splendid exhibition, and the Wanderers certainly showed superior methods. At times the Bolton forwards quite overwhelmed the Everton defenders by their artistically clever work, and it was only Everton's tenacity that saved them from defeat. Everton scored first (17 minutes) Kirsopp heading through a delightful centre by Donnachie. Three minutes later Buchan equalised, following clever work by Vizard, and at 24 minutes Stokes gave the Wanderers the lead Vizard again supplying the opening. After six minutes play in the second half Clennell made the score equal for the second time. Rowley was penalised for charging Clennell near the Bolton goal, and the latter converted the penalty kick . Two minutes later Bolton again took the lead, Herberts scoring from a smart pass by Stokes, and at 85 minutes Kirsopp got the final goal with a nice header from Clennell's opening. As indicated by the scoring, the fortunes of the game fluctuated in wonderful fashion, but throughout the Wanderers were the more finished and convincing side. Both sides missed chances, and a little more steadiness in front of goal would have made a deal of difference to the Wanderers. Everton's great weakness lay in the inability of their wing halves to hold the opposing forwards. Not only, however, did they fail in this section, but they were so busy trying to cope with the advances of the Bolton forwards that they had little time to devote to any aggressive work. Fleetwood worked hard as pivot, but it was a Herculean task. The backs were moderate, though Mitchell saved several capital shots. The forwards played an uneven game, their best work being seen in the first half, when both Jones and Donnachie put in some excellent centres. In contrast to Everton, the Bolton half-back line were the strongest part of the side. Fay worked like a Trojan, and got splendid support from both Rowley and Jennings. Vizard made most of the openings, although Roberts and Herbert were clever forwards. Teams: - Everton: - Mitchell, goal, Berwick, and Weller, backs, Brown, Fleetwood (Captain), and Robinson, half-backs Jones Jefferis, Kirsopp, Clennell, and Donnachie, forwards. Bolton Wanderers: - Drabble goal, Baverstock, and Feebery, backs, Rowley, Fay, and Jennings, half-backs, Stokes, Herbert, Roberts, Buchan, and Vizard, forwards.

A small crowd of spectators saw Everton Reserves defeat Bolton Wanderers Reserves by five goals to two. The latter had a local junior team's reserve goalkeeper, Howard, to deal with the hemes of Gault, Robinson, Cameron, Rigsby, and Evans, each of whom scored. Howard could not be blame for the first three goals. O'Donnell did well at left half but Gault was full of his old witchery. Gimblett held Everton's left wingers after the change round, and Davies was a sound centre half, but contrary to the showing of the home forwards, Everton attack was always dangerous near goal. Everton: - Bromilow, goal, Macconnachie, and Russell, backs, Wareing, Slade, and Grenyer, half-backs, Gault, Robinson, Cameron, Rigsby, and J. Evans, forwards.
“BOY” BROWELL COMES INTO HIS OWN.
Dundee Evening Telegraph - Wednesday 26 November 1919
Infant Phenomenon Who Startled the Football World
Played First League Game at the Age of Seventeen.
A who has now come into his own is Thomas Browell of Walbottle, Hull City, Everton, Manchester City and, for a few matches during the war Motherwell. Like Cook, of Oldham Athletic, Browell is one of a brotherhood, for Andrew and George Browell preceded him to Hull, and they were there together until Andrew, centre half-back, and his boy brother " Tom " went Everton. Nearly ten years have elapsed since Tom Browell stepped out a Tyneside village team into the eleven of Hull City, appearing as outside right at Bolton against Wanderers. Four matches at outside right preceded his debut as centre forward, in which position he knocked the late Jack Smith out of the arena altogether. scored three goals against Stockport County in his first match as the leader, and a fortnight after he piled on three more against Barnsley. This mild-eyed collier's lad was only 17, To Everton he eventually went for being one of three centre..forwards that Ambrose Langley, then with Hull City signed for £24 and transferred for £3000.
Played for Motherwell. It was in January, 1912, that Tom went Everton, and he was handed on to Manchester City at the end of October, 1913 for $1780. Directly after he joined Everton Tom Browell played for the Stripes against the Whites at Blackburn in an international trial test, but he was not a success -being shod in boots which were new and not his own. During the war he followed his trade as miner, worked very hard in Scotland and played but few matches. On September 29, 1918 Browell turned out for Manchester City against Bury. He had not been seen since February, 1915, but he speedily convinced everybody that he was precisely the same Tom Browell. he signalled his return by scoring thrice, and has never since been left out of the team. Last season he helped hismelf to 18 goals and helped others to as many more. At the moment he has 15 goals in Frist division strife to his credit for this season, but the point which rivets attention is that Browell is always in his palce, fit and eager, and a better-balanced centre than over he was when he was described as the infant phenomenon. Browell is now a man, and has that sound commonsense which experience can it would appear, only bring to fruition.
EVERTON THREE CHANGES.

EVERTON'S NEW OFFICIAL.
November 28 1919. The Liverpool Daily Post
Mr. Tom McIntosh, who has been associated with the Middlesbrough Football Club for eight seasons as a Secretary-manager, takes up his new duties with the Everton club on Monday. He has been the recipient of grits from the Middlesbrough directors and players. He was presented by the directors with a case of cutlery, and by the players with a massive rose bowl and silver cigarette case. Mr. Bach, chairman of the club, said Mr. McIntosh was going to another club, and a great club, and it was a compliment to Middlesbrough that he had been appointed to such a position. George Elliott, on behalf of the members of the team, spoke of the admirable work done by Mr. McIntosh for the club and players. Mr. McIntosh in reply, said he had always found the directors and players extremely considerate. Particularly did he appreciate the conduct of the players; he had no trouble with them, and hoped he would find a similar set of men at Everton.
