I FOOTBALL NOTES. [BY "THE TYKE."] I Ledbury Town, on Saturday last, met Hereford City on the Edgar-street ground in the re-play of the Hereford Chalenge Cup final. Because of what was at stake there was a keen contest and Ledbury lost by one goal to nil, scored half way through the second half. Ledbury took the same team to Hereford as on Monday last with thA exception of Hoult. Teams:- Herefoid City-Hedges; Lucas, Sutton; Taylor, Moseley, Qfjixley Watkins, Shepperd, Williams, Bentlev, Heywood. Ledbury- J Vicarage; H Smith, J Partridge; W Powell, R Powell, J Griffiths; C Pudge, J Watts, H Cale, J Taylor, A Goodwin. An early attack by the homesters was easily repulsed, and Rodney Powell stopped p certain goal with his back. The game was evenly contested and for a time neither side could show much effect on the defence of the other. The play was mostly in mid-field. Harry Cale seemed likely to get through but Lucas cleared. After a good bit of combination by Hereford the ball was centred but Williams shot wide. Hereford had a narrow escape later on when Watts passed out to Pudge who centred and within a yard off goal the whistle blew for offside. Smith stopped a run down with a timely kick, and Vicarage was called upon to defend. Pudge drove in a good centra but Sutton sent out to the left, and Heywood tricked Smith but Rodney Powell came to the rescue. Half-time came with the scores at par. The second half opened in tame fashion, and the Town soon had to play on the defensive. Ledbury got to the other end, and Cale missed a good opening. At the other end Williams tested Vicarage, but found him safe. Cale soon after scraped the cross-bar with a shot. Hereford began to steadily press, and Watkins shot in, but Partridge cleared. It seemed as though Ledbury were going to draw first blood. The ball went out to Goodwin, who cleverly got through the defence, and within a yard of the goal fell to his knees. Hedges immediately pounced on the leather and rolled on it, with the Ledbury forwards on him. Tho referee bounced the ball and Hereford cleared. This seemed to put Hereford on their mettle, and Shepperd shot the only goal of the match. Ledbury tried hard to equalise, and Pudge and Goodwin individually once or twice came up the wing but all efforts proved futile, and the game closed with Hereford winners 1-0.
