The 1903-4 picture features J Rumjamn on the right of the shield. I wonder what happened to the shield?

I have received a photo of the above school team from Ernest Bradshaw, former teacher and team coach.

During the season the team played 22 games, winning 16, drawing 2 and losing 4. They scored 100 goals and conceded 45. Their biggest wins included 9:1 against The Holt, 8:1 against 43rd Boys Brigade and 12:4 against Warrington G.S. They lost 5:3 to Liobians. Wright (30) and Adams (27) were the leading goal scorers.

On the back of the photo sent to me by Mr. Bradshaw it states: "Liverpool Institute 1941 Merseyside Shield Winners, Liverpool Football Ground." However, it does seem that the game was at Goodison Park.

From Brian Morris, December 2017:

"I was the Captain of the school soccer first team for the season 1947 - 1948. We reached the Senior Shield Final after a replay against Quarry Bank on Friday 19th March 1948 which we won 2 -1.

The final was to be played on the following Monday afternoon against SFX.

Two regular first team players namely Pemberton and Rawlinson were unfit and on the morning of the game, namely 22nd March, Fred Paterson who had not played for the school first team during the season came to me, and probably Bert Childs the Vice - Captain, saying he had brought his kit to school and was willing to play at Goodison if required. I knew he was a good left footer footballer from school house matches and so he turned out that afternoon.

We won by a single goal scored at the Glwadys Street end in the last minute of extra time. The goal was scored following a bit of a "melee" in the goal mouth and it was credited to Frank Harvey. I can retrace the last minute of the game as the ball started on the right wing and may well have crossed to Paterson who put it back into the middle.

A short report of the progress of the game appeared in the Echo, reporting that extra time was still being played. About a month later the team photograph appeared in the Evening Express which was the rival to the Liverpool Echo.

As mementos, I have the bill poster advertising the game at Goodison Park which appeared on the usual hoardings around the city. I also have the ball (the bladder having perished years ago).

A few days after the match Tony Hopwood (6ASc), whose father was a news reporter/photographer, handed me some photos taken during the match but I don't know who actually took the photos."

In answer to the question, "Any idea how many spectators attended?" Brian replied:

"I think that it may have been about 2000 spectators, all in the Goodison Road Stand. Boys and masters from both schools. 1000+ from Institute, we were given a half day off and I think there were 3 or 4 special trams laid on for us. Perhaps 600+ from SFX. Family, neighbours (eg. my next door neighbour who was an old boy of the school), local pensioners etc. (entrance fee only 1/6) and The Press!! I recall that it was very good sunny weather."

Can't tell you what the trophy is, (Payne Cup; identified by John Peat. Fred.) because I don't remember us winning anything! In fact the season was cut short that year because of the bus strike!
