The L&DCC Management Committee has been informed of this 'error' at regular intervals during the past five weeks and it has yet to be corrected. Is this a move by the Management Committee to assist in Bootle being promoted?

Where are the so called 'checkers'? Why aren't they doing their job? This is happening time and time again and the same people remain in situ. They'd soon jump to attention if their own club was given one point less.

The point puts Old Xaverians closer to Bootle in the race for promotion to the Premier Division.

As a result, the 2nd XI First Division table should read as follows:

The error was corrected later today but not before it was made public on this website. The Management Committee has been caught out yet again for not complying with the rules of the Liverpool Competition.

Would the error have been corrected had this article not appeared here? We very much doubt it!
