Monday 24 October 1892

PRESTON NORTH END V. ASTON VILLA.

These famous League elevens met on Deepdale enclosure, Preston on Saturday in showery weather before agate of 6,000 spectators. North End had Drummond and Gordon still on the injured list.

The Villains started the-lay, and Dunning was early on called upon to save a shot from Russell, and then Ross, jun. was twice only few inches over the bar, while at the other end Trainer saved brilliantly from A. Brown.

The home side then took the running strongly, and Russell scored from a grand centre by Beckton.

The ice once broken, the North End were not to be denied and Russell scored twice again in ten minutes and just before half-time Ross. jun., beat both the Villa backs and scored a fourth time.

The second half was marked by Villa packing their goal, and shoot as they would, the home side could not score again.

The Villa twice tested Trainer, but it was not until just on time that A. Brown managed to beat Trainer over a soft shot, the custodian being at the time claiming off side. North End, 4; Villa, 1
