Denaby Utd – F.A.Cup – Guiseley 2 Denaby 3

September 1927

Star Green ‘un – Saturday 24 September 1927

Departing from the Midland League for their customary and hopeful excursion in quest of a good run in the  F.A. Cup competition, Denaby United had to travel to Guiseley.

On paper there did not appear to be danger in the outing but Denaby found a “rod in pickle,” and as a matter of fact only qualified for the next round by 3—2.

Denaby owed their victory to their greater stamina which brought them their second equalising goal and their winning goal late in the gams.

This ability to fight back when in arrears was the best feature of Denaby’s play and it evident that the old club has again at its disposal a collection strong players.

Smith and Windle (2) were the goal-getters for Denaby and Windle’s brace demonstrated pleasingly the value of a half-back with a disposition to shoot.

The forwards were not their best, but as so far they have only failed to  score in one of the matches Denaby have played, there is no reason to suppose they will not improve in effectiveness.

In their total aggregate of eight goals prior to to-day seven players have scored, which suggests combination rather than individual brilliance.
