Barnsley Senior League.

The final of this competition, between Monckton and Darfield, was played on the Oak well ground yesterday, before a fair attendance.

Monckton were soon aggressive, and forced an unproductive corner. Darfield retaliated, and after a good movement, Fisher shot past. From a centre, Downing brought off good gave from Marsh. Parton, for Monckton, forced the Darfield custodian to concede a corner, which, however yielded nothing. Darfield replied, and Marsh shot narrowly past. From a corner Parton put on the-first goal for Monckton.

Halftime; Monckton 1, Darfield 0.

In the second half Darfield improved, and gave the Monckton defence many anxious moments, but Downing saved his side repeatedly. However, he was powerless with a penalty taken Marsh. This success encouraged Darfield, who continued monopolise the play.

Seven minutes before the end Downing was powerless with a great shot from Fisher, which placed Darfield ahead. Fisher scored again minute later.
