Heavy rain prior to the kick-off kept the crowd down to a minimum, but those who did brave the storms were rewarded with a good afternoon's sport. The visitors were a superb team in most cases but in the last 20 minutes had a real hard job to keep out the Slough forwards.

Hayes started attacking right from the start, and Goldsmith went very near scoring with a low drive which Marshall just managed to put round the post. Slough gradually came into the picture, and Ward, receiving a pass from Palmley, scored with a terrific shot. Duffield went through on his own in the next minute, only to see his shot deflect from a defender on to the crossbar.

The equaliser came just before the interval when Harmsworth beat Marshall after the same player had had a low shot saved. Almost on the dot of half-time Knight headed past Marshall to give Hayes a deserved lead/ More excitement was to follow from the kick off, Harmsworth put the visitors further ahead with the last kick before half- time.

The second half started slowly, and the heavy ball made play very difficult. However, both teams soon settled down again, and play became fast and very attractive to watch. Hayes increased their lead when Knight added to his own total and beat Marshall with a well placed shot.

Slough now came into the picture again and put on terrific pressure. Their efforts were soon rewarded, when Ward, who had moved to centre-forward, scored his second goal.

Play still kept round the visitors goal and Slough did everything but score. With five minutes left to play, they were awarded a penalty, which J. Ward converted.
Try as they might, Slough couldn't get an equaliser and Hayes finished deserved winners.
