FOOTBALL NOTES. I [BY SPHERN. I I Now that the football season has practically I drawn to a close, one cannot help wondering j whether Chester will have a premier team next I season. Some time ago strenuous efforts were made to secure a ground for the purposes of a first-class team, but there is still no prospects of that object being attained. There is no reason, however, why their efforts should not be renewed, because everyone will agree with me that Chester is sadly in need of a club similar to the one which existed two or three years ago. Nothing would please local footballers more than to know that a senior club existed in the city. But it will be as well to wait in patience till next season comes round. The football season was brought to a closo at Helsby on Saturday with the return match, under the auspices of the Chester and District League (senior division), between the local first eleven and Flint. The locals were the first to become aggres- sive, the Flint custodian having to save twice from Evans and then from Boyle. Several deter- mined attacks by Flint were repulsed by Sutton and his backs, and then Evans missed from a grand centre by Hughes, Boyle shooting over in the next minute. Ttie defence on both sides main- tained the upper hand. Helsby then attacked strongly, and from a free kick Boyle headed past the visitors' custodian, scoring the first goal. Flint retaliated, but the home team again took up the attack, and after Boyle had just headed over Cooke hit the post with a hard grounder. Give-and-take play fol- lowed, but at half-time the score stood at 1-0 in the home team's favour. Helsby re-started, and Evans, for the homesters, missed a grand chance from a centre by Hughes, A couple of free kicks to the locals wero followed by a fruitless corner. The visitors had a turn, but were driven back, and Bibby with a splendid individual effort scored the homo team's second goal. The homesters still had the best of mat- ters, and me visitors' custodian was also con- spicuous with some excellent saves. At length the visitors gained a corner, from which the ball was rushed through. Shortly afterwards they again managed to rush the ball past Sutton from a free kick, thus equalising the scores. The homesters afterwards made several determined at- tempts to notch the winning goal, but failed to again get past the visitors' defence, and when time was called the score remained at two goals each. The Helsby Reserves finished their season with a friendly game with Dunham Hill on the latter's ground, and won in easy fashion by 9 goals to 2. Teams representing the Newton Rangers, the proud cup winners, and Liverpool L. and N. W. Recreation Club met on the ground at Hoole on Saturday afternoon in a friendly fixture. In striking contrast to the week before, the specta- tors at this enoounter were very few. The match was not important, nor was it exciting, but the Rangers upheld their reputation by beating the visitors to the tune of two goals to nil. The Liver- pool men played well on the whole, and several times they experienced hard lines in not scoring. Tottenham Hotspur achieved tho summit of their ambition on Saturday, defeating Sheffield United at Bolton by three goals to one, and there- by securing possession of the Association Cup. They played splendid football throughout, and thoroughly deserved their triumph. Thanks to their brilliant work the national trophy goes back to the South after a lapse of nearly twenty years, and the Tottenham club may bo heartily congratulated upon having got together a side capable of winning the national trophy. All through the competition the team have worked with an amount of pluck and determination which has seldom been surpassed during the whole thirty years the Cup has been struggled for.
