MATCH QUOTES

"Devey passed him the ball smartly, and he went away at full speed towards goal; in quick succession he passed two of his opponents and the goalkeeper, seeing the danger, left his goal and dashed towards him, hoping to check his career. The Villa man, however, eluded his rush, but when he seemed absolutely certain to score, Lang, the back on the other side, dashed up and succeeded in kicking the ball outside. The crowd cheered as -loudly as though a goal had been scored, and rewarded 'Hare with loud cries of "Well played."
