SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL.
LEAGUE MATCHES

Notts v. Aston Villa.

This match was played at Nottingham in beautiful weather, before 8,000 people.

Notts kicked off against the wind, and the game was fast for about a quarter of an hour, when Brown was slightly injured. The Villa forwards got down, and Dickson scored a beautiful goal. Still the visitors had the best of matters, although Notts had hard lines in not scoring, May striking the upright.

The Villa got down again, and Archie Hunter struck the cross-bar. The Villa took three corners and a foul in front of goal, but could not beat Toone.

Notts again had hard lines. After splendid play on the part of the forwards. Burton, of the Villa, was cautioned for foul play. Notts took two comers before half-time, but nothing came of them, the score being then —Villa 1, Notts 0.

The second half was slightly, in favour of Notts at the outset, and, after fifteen minutes' play, Daft equalised with a magnificent shot.

Twice Hodgetts shot over the bar, and the game was extremely exciting. The Villa took two comers, but nothing came of them.

Towards the finish Notts played up strongly, but could not score, and a brilliant game resulted— Notts County 1 goal, Aston Villa 1 goal.
