V. OLD ST. ANDREW'S. (a.)-
Played on Boxing Day on the Fairfield, Kingston, when the visitors were
easily defeated by five goals to nil. At the outset Ocock and Humphrey
on the right wing made tracks for the visitors' goal, but the first point
came from the left, where Howard put in a shot which the goal-keeper stopped,
but in endeavouring to fist out put through the goal. This was followed
by a goal from Humphrey, and later on Ocock spoilt a certain goal from
Howard's foot by playing the ball when off-side.
The second half was a repetition of the first, the Kingston defence being
too good for the visitors, who rarely passed Peck and Baker. Kemp put
on a third goal, Howard a fourth, and Lanham, who found nothing to do
in his own goal, came up the field and neatly headed a fifth for his side,
causing considerable merriment by so doing. The St. Andrew's goalkeeper
and backs played well, but the halves and forwards were weak and very
much lacked combination.
