CLEVELAND JUNIOR CUP. -- Final Tie.
REDCAR, 3; SOUTH BANK, 2.
The final tie for the Cleveland Junior Cup was decided on the Middlesbrough Ground yesterday morning, the competing teams being Redcar and South Bank. There was an attendance of about 2,000 spectators, and the liveliest interest was manifested as a well-contested game proceeded. Teams:--
REDCAR. --Goal, Fall. Backs, McCrie and Rogowski. Half-backs, Wood, Breckon, and Woof. Forwards, Moore, Anderson, Sanderson, and Pauls.
SOUTH BANK. --Goal, Pattison. Backs, Spencer and Powell. Half-backs, Wheatley, Atkinson, and Upton. Forwards, Crane, Gerris, Collinson, Cooper, and Evans.
Redcar won the toss, and played the first half with a strong wind at their backs. After some even play Redcar began to press, and Sanderson scored for the seasiders with a grand shot. Then the steelworkers came to the front, and Collinson, after a brilliant sprint, equalised. From the kick-off South Bank came away again, and Crane added a second goal without much waste of time, but from a corner which Scott placed well, Anderson once more put the teams on an even footing. For some time following the seasiders had all the best of some excellent play, and after an ineffectual break away by South Bank, Pauls scored a third point for Redcar. Very shortly the whistle piped half-time with the score --Redcar, 3 goals; South Bank, 2 goals. South Bank had the wind on restarting, and this soon told. Fall having to kick out a close shot by Collinson, and a clever head by Gerrie. Time after time the ball was put behind the Redcar posts, but the steelworkers were unable to overcome the capital defence of the seasiders, who presently broke away down the left. Being repulsed they were again put on their defence, and some exciting play was witnessed in the Redcar goal, though without effect. After a gallant effort on the part of Redcar, the Bankers assumed the aggressive once more, but failed to score, and the game ended--
REDCAR ……………………..3 goals.
SOUTH BANK ……………….2 goals.
