Slough visited Maidenhead on Saturday with an unbeaten record. On the previous Saturday, they met at Maidenhead in the Berks and Bucks League, and won by two goals to one, and strange to say, the result on Saturday was exactly the same, but the game was a poor one. Little skillful play being shown.

There was a large attendance. The Slough Club has had a remarkably successful season so far. The first eleven have played thirteen matches without meeting with defeat and have scored forty-six goals against thirteen. They have beaten Marlow, Maidenhead Norfolkians, Maidenhead Town (3), Reading Amateurs, Clapton Reserves, West Brixton, Borough Polytechnic, and Kensington Town, and played draw games, both away, with Oxford City and Southall, and with Bowes Park at home. The Reserves have only been beaten by Windsor and Eton since September 27th.

Both teams have been entertained to dinner by their supporters in appreciation of their good form, when A. Summersby was presented with a marble clock as a wedding present; C. Poole with a pipe, offered by Dr. E. Weaver-Adams, for regular attendance at training last season; and R. Whiteman with a case of pipes for his services as hon. trainer to the senior team.

Both teams had improved their teams compared with the previous Saturday. In the first half each side lowered the other’s colours, Denton scoring for Slough and Alf Walton (penalty kick for Maidenhead. The Bucks club failed to score from a penalty awarded them, Edwards saving well.

The only point scored I the second half was gained by Smith for Slough, who won a game in which Maidenhead were more frequently attacking – compelling Slough to act on the defensive for the last twenty minutes – by two goals to one.

The losers were very weak in front of goal, and this undoubtedly lost them the game. Fisher, for Slough, played a champion game and W. Walton was a splendid worker for Maidenhead.
