League Unknown
These teams met once again at the Dolphin on Saturday afternoon, and a fairly good number of people assembled to see the game.

Windsor were unable to put a full team in the field, being minus the services of the Rev. F. H. Smith, L. Cort Starie, Venner and Bignell.

The visitors had the advantage of the wind at the start, and were early round the Slough goal, and Moore distinguished himself with a fine shot which struck the crossbar and rolled out.

Denton was conspicuous for a fine run and centre in Rogers nearly put through his own goal, though the corner he conceded proved futile. A clever run and centre by Prior was negated by Holtum, who cleared at the critical moment. It was a close shave for Slough when Fountain got through the backs, but Tilly ran out and checked the Windsor centre forward, the ball rolling outside.

Prior was again responsible for a telling run, but the backs interposed before he could shoot. Corbett was applauded for a smart bit of play, but the nimble backs on the other side prevented him getting dangerous.

A minute later, when Slough were pressing, Bennett came out and brought off a fine save. There was an exciting time in front of the Windsor goal from one of Prior's centres, which was spoiled by J. Ivall being given offside.

Both sides gained corners. Perry headed away the Slough place kick, but Wright returned the leather, and Prior shot. Skinner, who was standing immediately in front of Bennett, but of his hand, the result being a penalty. This was taken by Corbett, who opened the scoring after 25 minutes play.

Shortly after Corbett got clean through, and had a capital opening. Bennett rushed out and B. O. Shot wide of the target. Two minutes later Slough oppressing, and whilst Bennett was appealing for offside J. Ivall shot second goal.

Windsor made a determined effort to reduce the lead though the shooting of the forwards was weak. For some time the visitors pressed, and Tilly had to negotiate hot shots from Wilkins and Perry. Each side were awarded corners, but nothing came of them and at half-time Slough were leading by two goals to nil.

With the wind it was thought Slough would do even better, but Windsor played a plucky game. Soon after the crossover, Denton was badly fouled by Rogers. He fell heavily on his shoulder, and it was at first thought that the limb was dislocated. Dr Weaver Adams was sent for and found that it was severely bruised. Denton was unable to take any further part in the game, and the Slough forward line was greatly handicapped as a result.

For some time Slough held the advantage, but could not increase their score. Then Windsor came up and Perry looked dangerous until he was hustled by West, who spoiled his chance. From a freekick for Windsor the ball was well placed and Tilly saved well.

A trio of corners fell to the share of Slough, each of which were got away. Prior repeatedly centred from the right, but the Windsor defence was sound, and no further scoring occurred. Windsor thus retired defeated by two goals.
