SATURDAY NOVEMBER 7TH:

A MARVELLOUS GOAL BY GORDON DALE.

A marvellous goal by Gordon Dale, who collected the ball from a mis kick by Aldershot in the 67th minute, ran more than half the length of the field with it, beating two Aldershot defenders for speed, and finally dribbled round the goalkeeper to slide the leather home, was the climax to a good win against the Hampshire side today.

City: Jones; Foley, MacDonald; Mitchell, Oliver, Thompson; Stiffle, Rees, Wilkinson, Calland, Dale.

Aldershot:- Brodie; Shipwright, Jackson; Mundy, Hodges, Tyrer;Howfield, Stepney, Norris, Matthews, Parnell.

The City, whose first two goals were scored by Rees and Calland, were slow at times, yet controlled the game and should have made sure of the points before half-time, at which stage they were only one goal to the good.
