SHERIFF OP LONDON CHARITY SHIELD. ASTON YILLA V. QUEEN'S PARK. Everything was favourable for football at the Crystal Palace, when teams chosen as best amateur and professional sides of the season met to contest for the Sheriff of London's Charity Shield. Queen's Park's participation in the contest was most popular, and the famous Villa, were known to have a. severe task in their effort to uphold the renown of the pro- fessionals. The weather, though dull, was line, and there was no wind. A big crowd assembled long before the start, and the attendance esti- mated at 12.000. The turf was in perfect order. Uhlortunatily. the Villa captain (Devey) could not play owing to an old injury. Garraty took his place, and Aston appeared at full-back instead of Spencer. Queen's Park were exactly as announced. Stewart- being, luckily, well enough to turn out. Captain Simpson was referee. The Villa kicked off about three minutes after advertised time. Play hegran evenly, the ball being chiefly in ipidfield. Smith got down for the Villa from a bass by Bowman. and Ather-mith headed in to Gnrrafy. who could not shoo;, and just afterwards Stewart headed out a centre by Atherainitii. Tine Villa I pressed strongly- A free-kick close up, taken by Bowman, went outside the Seoch goal. Pla I continued near the Park goal, and Stewart gave a corner. This v, as cleared, aud the Park broke away. M'Coil being off-side, spoilt the rush, and Lambie beiug injured, a delay occurred. Prior to the f.ec-kvk being taken Lambie retired, pud aiier il'Coll had forced a corner the "iiia attacked r.troryly. Crabtree shot over. and soon after At-hu- I smith. who was very prominent, shot behind. Then Queen's Park broke away, and from a free-kick Stewart shot over. From another free Stewart sent into the net without the ball touching the player. Th* game generally was disappointing, neither sid< showing much comMn^.tion, and the Villa, who had most of the play, shot badly. Lambie was only off five minutes. Play improved in pace, and both goaJs were in danger towards the interval, but the defence of both was very strong. Christie was particularly good for the Scotsmen, and at half-time nothing had been scored. On resuming- the Villa forced the game, Johnson shooting over and Waller saved from a long centre by At her smith. A corner followed without result. Smith was con- spicuous for the Villa, and at the other end George saved a shot from M'Coll. A good opening for the Villa was spoiled by Johnsom shooting over. Play was much better than in the firs: half. being faster and both sides more together. The game was verj even, and mostly in mid-field. For some time the Villa had most of the piay, Wheldon missing a fine chance. The half expired without any scoring, and extra time was played. I -k Final score. Goals. Aston Villa o 1 Q(wen's Park o
