MATCH QUOTES

"The remaining stages were most exciting. United making strenuous efforts to gain the lead. George just managed to stop a lengthy ground shit by Peddie and following a couple of corners, Rogers placed into the goal mouth for Peddie to just miss scoring, an exciting and bustling game thus ending in a draw of a goal each."
