League R.J. Ivall
The return league match between these clubs attracted a good attendance to the Chesham ground on Saturday, the weather being delightfully fine.

Both sides were at full strength, G. Darvell reappearing in the Chesham halfback line after a long absence owing to a wrenched knee.

Unfortunately for Slough, H. T. Smith was taken with shivering fits on the journey to Chesham, and although he turned out he was of little use to his side.

Chesham opened the attack, and Werrell was immediately called upon to save. A foul against Darvell gave Slough a chance, and Denton only missed by inches.

Goodger and J. Humphreys were now busy testing Werrell, but he saved in grand style. Even play ensued, but shortly afterwards Hollington was called upon to save twice in succession, which he did splendidly.

Orton next put through but was ruled offside. Slough now attacked, and Algy Smith hit the post. At the other end Werrell saved magnificently from Hawkes. Half-time: Chesham, nil; Slough, nil.

In the second half, H. T. Smith was so unwell that he did not reappear, and Slough had to play with 10 men, J. Wright filling the vacancy in the halfback line.

To make matters worse Reg young injuring his we can call, and eventually change places with W. H. Wilkins. The Chesham men started the second half well, and Orton quickly beat Werrell.

In 10 minutes the same player again found the net, and a fine pass by Goodger enabled Keen to register number three.

Slough then played up desperately, and from centres by young, Denton twice headed past Wallington.

Try how they would, Slough could not get on terms, and Chesham won by 3 goals to 2.

Ivall is in great form for Slough and played one of the best games of his life.
