Weakened Denaby Side Defeats Scarborough.

Denaby United 2 Scarborough 1

Denaby United, although handicapped by the absence of Hunter (left back) and Ogley (centrehalf), did well to beat Scarborough the odd goal of three at Denaby yesterday.

Denaby substitutes played hard, but the game was marred by a high wind. When facing the elements Denaby more than held their own in the first half, but Jukes converted a penalty, conceded by Barker, and Scarborough led at interval by goal.

In the second half Ingledew scored twice for Denaby, once following centre from Winfield, and again after taking a forward pass from Kelley. Though he scored twice, Ingledew’s general work was not wholly satisfactory and Wroe, too, was not to form.

Denaby had a strong half-back line, and the outstanding player for Scarborough was Meads, a clever centre half back.
