"The second of Eighteen (1905-06)" by Steve Horton

Liverpool clinched their second league title in just fourteen years existence despite losing this game at Bolton. With two games remaining we were five points of Preston, who had a game in hand. A win at Burnden Park would guarantee the championship and 1,000 Reds fans made the trip by special train.

In a thrilling game we went down 3-2, with Jack Parkinson scoring both our goals. However news came through that Preston had been beaten at Sunderland, meaning we could not be overhauled in the league table. 
The team arrived back at Exchange Station at 9pm and were met by several hundred excited fans, who escorted them back to their wagonette. As it was Easter Monday, several other daytrippers were returning from excursions and wondered what was going on. When told of our success, they joined in the celebrations too.
It was our second title in just fourteen years existence and had been made even more remarkable by the fact we had been promoted just a year earlier. The Reds had become the first team to achieve this feat and only Everton, Ipswich and Forest have equalled it since.


Season:  1905/06
