The outcome of this long looked forward to game, which was played at the Dolphin on Saturday, January 30th, 1932, was rather disappointing, and did not provide the onlookers with the stirring game expected.

The form of the Gradwell’s eleven did not realise expectations and the Slough team, rising to the occasion, won with more ease than the score would suggest.

An extremely interesting and entertaining first half gave promise of a rousing second portion but this did not materialise, this second 45 minutes deteriorating into a scramble – sometimes unpalatable.

Every man in the Slough elven played well, Morgan's feat of scoring all four goals and leading a fine line of forwards so well being outstanding. The foraging and dribbling of Morris was another feature, as was the fine play of Melia at centre half. Foster also worked magnificently and gave no scope to the Gradwells right wing. Payne and Evans again showed the brilliant form they had been showing all the season.

Gradwells, somewhat belied their reputation as a clever set of footballers. R. Scott tried hard to pull the forward line together and was the most dangerous forward, although Ward was always working to a purpose. The halves must have played well below form, but Blick worked like a Trojan at back, and Harrison was a brilliant goalkeeper.

Within ten minutes Morgan dashed through to score a fine goal for Slough, and the same player added a second when he fastened on to a through pass from Morris. The determination of the visitors was rewarded when E. Scott headed a centre from Ward past Marshall, but, before half-time Morgan received a return pass from Power to score a fine third for Slough.

The second half was poor in comparison with the first, In a breakaway R. Scott deceived Payne and went on to score a second for the visitors. Then an injury to Peacock caused the Slough eleven to be re-arranged. Far too many fouls were committed hereabouts, and injuries were frequent. It was a splendid dribble by Bowyer, who at the right moment put through to Morgan, which gave that player the opportunity of scoring Slough's fourth goal with a brilliant left-foot shot.
