MATCH QUOTES

"Towards the close Glossop attacked strongly, but they could not improve their score, but on the other hand they kept the Villans at safe distance, and Williams had not much to do of dangerous character, and despite the visitors putting on superhuman effort, they failed to draw level, and Glossop, amidst loud cheering, won one goal to nil."
