BOLTON WANDERERS V. ASTON VILLA

At Bolton, before 5,000 spectators.

Cassidy kicked off against the wind, and the Villa soon had a fruitless corner.

Cassidy soon scored, but he was palpably off- side.

The Wanderers were very aggressive, but Cox and Clarkson were strong in defence.

Warner kicked out a fine shot by Davenport, and Brogan kicked over.

M’Nee gave Cassidy an opening, but he shot outside.

Bolton continued to have the play, but could not score. Paton was cheered for smart work, and M'Nee at length scored from a free kick.

Cox saved several times in fine style.

Parkinson cleared his goal, although hemmed in by opponents.

Turner made a mess of it when the ball was knocked down in front of him by the goalkeeper, and Brogan scored again; the result at half-time being Wanderers 2 goals, Villa 0.

On resuming the visitors were several times dangerous, but dallied too much in front of goal.

Cassidy threw away a simple chance, and Warner was very watchful in goal.

Brogan screwed in after a dashing run, and Turner headed a third goal.

The home team kept up the pressure, and Bullough soon after scored the fourth point.

A few minutes later the "Villans" managed to stave off the attack, and visited the Wanderers' goal, where an abortive corner was conceded them.

Then the home team once more attacked, and Warner was cheered for some fine saves.

Towards the finish the Villa played very hard, but could not score.

Final score Wanderers 4 goals, Aston Villa 0
