Mexborough & Swinton Times – Friday 26 September 1930
Denaby Beaten At Hull.
Yesterday, Denaby put up a good fight at Hull but were beaten 1-2,
Denaby were the first to score but the scores were levelled before the interval and Hull got the only goal of the second half.
The play was good to watch and the pace fast. Denaby had the better of it in the opening stages and Gilchrist scored for them in ten minutes. But Smith before that had missed an easy chance for Hull, and later Hull improved and Brannan was fully extended by one shot by Fawcett after RALEIGH equalised.
Raleigh was repeatedly dangerous but there was no more scoring before the interval.
Denaby continued to put up a good fight in the second half but FOSTER got the winner for Hull.
