Darfield United 1 Wombwell Main 2

Played at Darfield on Tuesday, in the present of 2000 spectators. 15 minutes from the start a mistake by one of the United full-back let in Wragg, who with an open goal to shoot at, gave Wombwell the lead..

Play was very even after this up to half-time, without any alteration being made in the score.

On resuming Walter Thompson made a dashing run on his wing, and succeeded in getting the ball just inside the goalpost.

Darfield made a strenuous effort and about 10 minutes from the close Paul Fellows shot hard and scored, the ball gliding off one of the Wombwell Main players into the net.
