Although Wycombe were the smarter team in this game, at Elm Park, Reading, last Saturday (April 3rd, 1921) the score flattered them.

Slough were unlucky inasmuch as E. J. Norris failed to pass a test on Friday evening, and Dale and Tatton were also missing.

Both Grant and Glover missed the long swinging passes that Norris gives them, and Grant was the chief sufferer as Johnson fed Glover much better than Baldwin did Grant

The best man on the field was G. E. Payne, the Slough captain and centre half, who did the work of two men. Lucas was another who shone in attack and defence. The Slough backs were at times brilliant and at other times they were weak in clearing,Had Slough accepted the chance that came in the first minute it would probably have altered the whole aspect of the game. Grant received the ball from Didcot and passed to Baldwin who transferred to Sherwood. The latter could have had a first tirner but thought it safer to pass to Johnson who was standing unmarked, but with a gaping goal he skied over the bar,
The homesters scored after 15 minutes. Smith smartly beat two or three opponents and gave to Boreham He was a good 10 to 12 yards offside but the referee let him go on and beat Money. Mr H Maisey one of the linesmen, signalled frantically to the referee for offside, but Mr. Mattingley appeared to be about the only person on the ground who failed to see that the goal was an unfair one.
A second point soon followed, McConnell letting Boreham through again. Within 30 minutes Wycombe were three up, Smith scoring.
Five minutes later Glover came down the wing and centred, in the ensuing scramble Johnson forced the ball over the line - Sherwood making doubly sure.
Soon after the restart Money fell on to a shot from Boreham and Grace kicked the ball from under the goalie while he was on the ground. From a centre by Glover Wicks stopped a shot from Johnson, the ball went out to Payne, who scored a lovely goal - the best of the match. A corner to Wycombe ended in Jackman cleverly trapping the ball and shooting through to make the score 5-2 in Wycombe's favour.
