Sweet Sixteen

Denaby Win at Sheffield

Sheffield University 0 Denaby United 8

In their two games against Sheffield University Denaby United have scored 16 goals without reply. ARDON, Denaby United´s centre forward, scored twelve of the goals.

Denaby won 8-0 on Saturday and would have probably scored more but for the University goalkeeper, who, despite the shots that passed him gave a fine display.

Dyson, a University forward tested Gibson with strong shots and Watt-Smith played a forceful game. Outstanding players for Denaby were Smith, Gibbs and Ardron.

Denaby´s goals were scored by ARDRON (6) and BURKINSHAW (2).
