11_04_18 Millwall v. WHU

Millwall:

Carmichael, Kirkwood, Jeffrey, Martin W., Wilson, Blythe, arrett, Martin J., Vincent, Voisey, Elliott.


A very "friendly" match was played between unrepresentative sides at New Cross before 2,000 spectators. Whatever cleverness was shown came from the West Ham side, but it brought them no reward, as Millwall proved victorious by the odd goal in five. The game began very quietly, and the crowd were soon urging the players to "wake up." Butcher shot a good goal for West Ham, but Vincent easily equalised and at the interval the sides were on level terms. Millwall resumed without Wilson, but had a fair share of the play. Shea crowned a good individual effort by giving his side the lead, but J. Martin equalised from a corner. With four minutes to go Elliott obtained a further point, also from a corner.

With the fortune of the game going against their opponents, the Southern League gained a victory 4 goals to 0 over the Irish League at Upton Park. Two of the goals were due to blunders by an Irish defender, and the play generally went so evenly that much closer result would have conveyed a more correct idea of the merits of the sides. In smartness on the ball and combination the visitors showed some superiority, but Lacked pace and weight, while the backs compared unfavourably with Britton, of Northampton, and Jeffrey, of Millwall. The Southern League halves did their best work in checking their rivals. They generally kicked too hard, showing little care in placing the ball nicely to the men most likely to carry on a successful attack. Although the spoiling game was effective, Booth, Wilcox, and Trueman have all played sounder football. The forwards put plenty of work into their efforts without reaching very high standard of play. Shea appeared instead of Fleming, and G. W. Webb fell lame when the third was scored at the start of the second half. Moody and Lipsham were a good left wing. The Irish forwards were spasmodic near goal. Hunter, the outside right, created the most favourable impression, and Reid, the left half, had no superior on the field. Altogether, the Irishmen gave a creditable display against opponents who had previously beaten the Scottish and English Leagues. By this third victory the inter-League engagements. the Southerners retain their unbeaten record. The Southern League had the advantage of the wind, and three minutes after the kick-off Jefferson sent in centre, which Andreas had the misfortune to put through his own goal. The Irishmen replied with combined work, but, except that Dodds got in a couple of shots, they were not very dangerous. second score came when Hanna could only just reach long high centre by Jefferson, and gave Moody the simple task of putting the ball into the net. Napier blundered with centre Hunter, or the difference between the sides would only have been goal at the interval. The Southern League resumed with great vigour. Webb, who was going through, fell he charged at the backs, but Moody was able to score with smart shot. The Irishmen held their own on the general play, but had to deal with a sound and vigorous defence, while their own backs left something to be desired. A palpable error by Foye gave the home side the last goal. Wilcox tried a shot which was going wide, when the right back turned the ball inside the post. Play slackened occasionally, but was always interesting.
