Shrewsbury School 2013

For the 50th year in a row, Liverpool Ramblers took 5 teams to play Shrewsbury on Saturday the 7th September 2013. In an unusually good day for the visitors, the 1st XI won 1-0, the 2nd XI won 3-1, the 3rd XI won 3-1 and the Vets drew 1-1. Only the 4th XI let the side down, losing 5-3 in an entertaining game.

After the match we were delighted to present the school with two copies of Jo Russell’s “Liverpool Ramblers AFC, the Complete History”. Frost prevented the first game between the school and the Ramblers on the 9th December 1882, but the fixture was fulfilled on the 28th March 1883. 

Pictured are Steve Biggins (Shrewbsury School), Nick Kennedy (Ramblers President), Jo Russell and Giles Bell (Shrewsbury School). A few more pictures from the day can be seen here. The school’s website report is here


Unfortunately two Ramblers playing in the 3rd XI game ended up in hospital; Matt Pochin injured his knee and, rather more seriously, Phil Morley broke his ankle. Both are wished a speedy recovery, especially Phil who will undergo an operation this week.
