STOKE v. ASTON VILLA.

Played at Stoke, the home team having a grand reception by three thousand spectators.

The home team started the game, and soon made away for the Villa goal. Some pretty play resulted, but the custodians kept their goals intact to half time.

After resuming, Athersmith got away, and passing to Campbell, that player defeated Rowley with a low shot.

This reverse somewhat disorganised the home forwards for a time, but responding to the call of their supporters, they made matters very lively for the Villa defence. Dunning saving grandly time after time, and the result of the finish was—Villa, one goal: Stoke, none.
