Valuable Victory for Wednesday

Denaby United  0  Wednesday Reserve 1

The result at Denaby, where Wednesday won by good goal, scored by Stringfellow would be a disappointment to Grimsby Town and Doncaster Rovers. But the Midland League leaders deserved their victory, howbeit Denaby took a good deal of shaking off, the issue being in doubt right up to the last minute.

Yet Wednesday played a clever football, but it speaks well for the Denaby halfbacks and backs that the visitors could only managed to score once.

Where Denaby were lacking was in their attack. Holt being weak at outside- right and Dodsley below his usual form on the other wing. Moseley, the new centre, was somewhat erratic, but did enough to deserve a further trial, while W. Hanwell, though always a trier, did not reproduce the form he showed against Trinity Reserve earlier in the week. Joe Westwood, as usual, put up a fine game at centre-half, and no fault, could be found with the home defence.

There was none better in the Wednesday attack than Glennon, the ex Denaby player. The game drew larger “gate” than has been seen for weeks past, but the club is deserving even « larger measure of spectatorial support, which should be forthcoming to reward a lot officials and wholehearted players.
