Liverpool R.L
I follow a group on FB called The Liverpool Nobody Knows Tour and this little story popped up.


Liverpool is not a city you would associate with rugby league - and with good reason! A professional rugby league club, Liverpool City, once existed here and played for one season - 1906-1907.
They played at the Stanley Athletics Ground - the location of which is unclear. It is believed they played in blue and yellow.

In the rugby league record books Liverpool City hold a joint record - for losing every game in a season. They finished bottom of the league of twenty six clubs.

The highlight of their season - a draw against Bramley - was later expunged from the records because the return game wasn't played. The low point of Liverpool Citys season was probably a 68-0 defeat at the hands of St Helens - the game being played on the 30th March 1907.

Liverpool City subsequently disappeared. Another Liverpool City rugby league existed between 1951-1968 ( their badge shown below ) but they had no connection with the original club by that name.

Didn't they eventually wind up (quite literally) as Blackpool Scorpions, after more gimmick changes than Kevin Nash?

Panthers, not Scorpions.

Actually, Wikipedia knows. Probably.

I do the same, but with Jim Cornette instead of A-Dolf.
