League Unknown
Hanwell were the visitors to the Dolphin ground on Saturday afternoon, and they have just cause to remember the trip for many a day, for something near record was established by the homesters, who ran out victors by no fewer than 14 goals to nil.

This coming after the defeat of 8-1 by Maidenhead the previous Saturday has somewhat altered the aspect of Hanwell's goal average.

It was a miserable day for football, rain commencing shortly before the match in continuing right through the game, consequently the attendance was limited.

Slough had not a full team out, B. O. Corbett, the international, who has assisted the Bucks team several times, again appearing for the Corinthians, whom he has also promised to accompany on their Easter tour.

Leat and Cane, from the reserves appeared in the homesters front rank, and almost from start to finish Hanwell were hopelessly out of the running. Seven goals were notched in each half, in fact they came with such regularity that it required a scoring board to keep an account, and towards the close a point failed to raise a cheer.

Directly had the ball been set in motion Slough had a couple of free kicks and from the second of these a corner was forced. Denton took the place kick and Andrews guided the leather into the net two minutes from the start.

Almost immediately after, Reg Young obtained a second from a freekick. Andrews added a third from an individual run, whilst a long shot by Leat be the custodian a fourth time.

After the goalkeeper had saved from Kane, Denton caught the rebound and registered number five. R. J. Ivall was responsible for the six point with a long swift drive, and from a good run by Denton, Kane obtained the seventh goal.

For the last quarter of an hour before the interval Hanwell played up wonderfully well, and although they put in several shots, they were unable to score and at half-time the record stood Slough 7; Hanwell 0.

The second half was more one-sided than the first. From the restart the Slough forwards went away and Roberts scored number eight, after the custodian had once cleared. 10 minutes later Roberts walked through and got another point. Then Ivall received a pass from Leat and with one of his characteristic drives brought up the number to double figures.

Roberts and Andrew scored again in rapid succession. For a short time there was a brief cessation from scoring, though Roberts and Ivall shot over the bar two or three times. 10 minutes from time a tussle in front of the home goal resulted in Denton scoring number 13, after which the visitors forwards romped away and Tilly had to handle for the first time this half.

Leat led up to the last goal by a fine run and centred which came transferred and so ended the most one-sided game seen at the Dolphin this season by a win for Slough by 14 goals to nil.
