NORTHAMPTON TOWN 1 EXETER CITY 1
AT NORTHAMPTON.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 19th COBBLERS GET LATE EQUALISER.

Exeter City deserved to have taken both points from their match at the County Cricket Ground, Northampton, but after they had taken the lead in the second half Kane ran on to a centre from Mills and put the ball into the net as Jones came out. It was cold and raining slightly as the teams ran out on to a pitch that was saturated and strewn with sawdust in many parts.

Northampton:- Brewer; Claypole, Patterson; Cooke, Gale, Bowen; Griffin, Kane, Mills, Ward, Olah.

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

The Cobblers were lucky to get a point from this game with the goal snatched near the end. They had given the City some trouble in the last 20 minutes, but generally Exeter had been the better football ing side and were worth two points. Exeter's goal was scored by Wilkinson from Stiffle's pass, after 54 minutes. The attendance was 5,500.
