3 - 1
Slough Town
Abrams (5)
These teams met in their Amateur Cup tie, on the Printing Works Enclosure, Aylesbury, on Saturday, in delightful weather before about 300 spectators.

Aylesbury were well represented, including A. H. Jones in their team for the first time, whilst Slough placed a useful side in the field.

Slough won the toss, and Aylesbury kicked off. The visitors had the best of the opening exchanges, and Abrams within about five minutes of the start broke through and scored for them.

This reverse roused the home team who made strenuous endeavors to equalise, but Vaughan gave an excellent display in goal, and kept out some very difficult shots.

At length Cowley, who was in fine form, beat the goalkeeper with a good shot making the scores equal.

Just before the interval Cowley was again successful in scoring. The teams crossed over the home club leading by two goals to one.

At the commencement of the second half Slough played up and looked like equalising but Brazen was able to keep his charge intact.

It was not until within a quarter of an hour from the finish that Aylesbury placed the result beyond doubt by scoring a third point. Turnham took the ball up the field, and passing across a scrimmage resulted in front of goal, during which Butchnell succeeded in scoring, the goalkeeper failing to place the ball over the line.

Nothing more was registered, and Aylesbury ran out winners of a well-fought game by three to one.

There is no doubt that the best team won, for the Aylesbury men are now settling to their work and in fact, never played better. Slough also played a capital game.

F. C. Brazell, Rev. A. J. Jones (c), E. E. Wright, H. Smith, W. Scott, W. Turnham, A. H. James, W. Adams, H. Cowley, H. E. Fellowes, W. L. Butchnell.
