Monday 21 November 1892

NEWTON HEATH V. ASTON VILLA.

At Newton Heath. Hare started the game for the visitors, before 3,000 spectators.

The Villa attacked, but ran the ball out. The home team next got away, and Fitzsimmons shot the ball, but Dunning saved.

The visitors got away, but they sent the ball wide several times, their shooting being very erratic.

Dunning had to save a grand shot from Fitzsimmons, which he did in fine style. A corner was gained by the Villa, which was taken and well placed by Brown, but the ball was got out of danger.

The home team now pressed, but a fruitless corner was the only result. The game ruled very even, Warner at one end saving several good shots from the visitors, while at the other end Dunning saved from Farman.

Dowds now put in a splendid long shot, from which Warner, catching the ball, threw it out of danger.

Both teams strove hard to score, but could not succeed up to half- time, when the home team were leading by 1 goal to 0.

On resuming the game the home team were soon on the attack, and the Villa defence had to work hard to keep out the home forwards. Dunning and Evans were playing a grand game, and kept all out, until grand work by Stewart got the ball well in, and after a sharp struggle in the goal mouth Coupar beat Dunning with a low shot.

Corners were given to the home team, but they were got away. Farman, Colville, and Fitzsimmons shot several times, and the visitors' left got away but Clements beat them.

A free kick close in now looked dangerous for the Heathens but the ball was got out of danger.

Dunning at the other end saved a grand shot from Coupar. The game now tied very even, each side putting in several splendid shots, which each custodian repelled in splendid style.

After some time a corner was gained by the Heathens, which was taken, and well placed by Farman. Several splendid attempts were made by the visitors to break through the home defence, but they were all fruitless, as Clements, Mitchell, and Warner played a thoroughly sound game. Towards the finish Newton Heath made desperate attempts to add to their score, but they could not succeed. Result- Newton Heath 2 goals, Aston Villa 0.
