MATCHDAY QUOTES

"A draw was quite justified by the play, for while both forward lines did dashing work occasionally, the defence on both sides was the feature of the afternoon's play."

*The Westminster Gazette*
Monday, 13 March 1899

THE SHERIFF OF LONDON SHIELD.

There seems to be something about that "Dewar" Shield which prevents any dub from securing its possession even temporarily. Last year neither Sheffield United nor the Corinthians could decide which should hold it. On Saturday Aston Villa and Queen's Park played for an hour and a half, and then for an extra half hour, without a goal being scored ; and, as they cannot arrange to meet again this season, for the second time the shield will have joint holders.

The game itself was rather disappointing. as there was more of the " kick and rush " business than of pretty football about it. Aston Villa had most of the play during the first half hour, but they were very erratic in front of goal, and Waller --the Richmond captain-- stopped everything that came his way.

At the opening of the second half Queens Park attacked strongly, but the defence was as sound on the one side as it had been on the other.

In the extra half-hour the Scotchmen kept up the pressure until the change of ends, and from then until the finish the Villa had the best of matters, but nothing was scored.

A draw was quite justified by the play, for while both forward lines did dashing work occasionally, the defence on both sides was the feature of the afternoon's play.
