Wednesday 6th November 1968
ECFC v Lincoln
Football League
Won 3-0

This game provided us with mixed feelings. We were, of course, happy with a 3-0 victory, but many were not convinced about the standard of football City played to obtain this win. Indeed, seldom have we heard so many different opinions about a game at St. James' Park, and no two people seemed able to agree as to whether the entertainment was good or indifferent. The more whole hearted City supporters (bless 'em) were quite satisfied, but others felt that City were flattered by the score.
It is difficult for any City supporter to criticise the home team when they win 3-0 but there is no doubt that the side has played much better this season without getting both points. Still, it is goals that count, and although much of our play was scrappy and we missed a lot of chances, particularly in the first half, we scored through Corr, Balson, and Banks, and three goals are enough to win most games.

Team:- Shearing; Smyth, Blain; Newman, Harvey, Curtis; Corr, Banks, Balson, Kirkham, Pleat.
