Empire Exhibition Trophy – Part 18 – 10th June 1938

FOR  EXHIBITION

TROPHY

……………………………………

Celtic  and  Everton

at  Ibrox

…………………………………..

Delaney  Will  Be

On  View

……………………….

In the hope that Everton may repeat the fine form which they displayed against Rangers, a large crowd – if the weather is fine – will be attracted to Ibrox Stadium tonight to see the English club and Celtic, the Scottish League Champions, do battle in the final of the Exhibition football tournament.

Splendidly endowed physically, the Everton players, in their games so far, have revealed ball control of a high order and against Rangers especially they delighted everyone by their ability to shoot accurately and powerfully from long range. And besides that, their forwards, like Celtic’s, delight in inter-changing movements which can be very perplexing for opposing defenders.

Both clubs can boats powerful defences and the centre half-backs, Lyon ( Celtic) and Jones ( Everton) are dominating personalities. The result, therefore, appears to lie with the forwards and here Celtic may have the advantage, especially if they have the services of Delaney, their International outside-right.

And Everton will be without Gillick the former Ranger. His place will be taken by Geldard, the English internationalist. Mr T Thompson, Northumberland, will be the referee.
