SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL.

SATURDAY'S FOOTBALL. Chester played Stockport County in the qualifying round of the English Cup on Saturday at Stockport, the visitors being accompanied by a number of their Cestrian supporters. In the first half the homesters had the sun, wind, and slope in their favour, but for some time their defence was rather weak, although nothing resulted. Gradually the County settled down, however, and Worrall and Heyes became dangerous, sending in shots which Coventry repelled in his most effective style. Shortly afterwards Wilson, of the home team, scored from a corner, and the play for a period became slow. Then Worrall got through with a splendid shot, after grand combination on the part of the County forwards, and at half-time the homesters led by two goals to nothing. On the re-start Chester were seen to much better advantage, the forwards, as on the previous Saturday at home, playing a capital game. At last their efforts were rewarded, and Lewis scored Chester's only goal. From this point the game was not of special interest, and no further scoring took place, Stockport thus winning by two goals to one. On the play, the teams were about evenly matched. The chief event in Saturday's League games was the overthrow of the champions at Ewood Park, so that there is now only one undefeated team in the competition, to wit, Sheffield United. It is not often that seven goals are scored in the second half of a League contest, but the Rovers scored four, while the Villa put on three, after a pointless first half, the Villa thus sus- taining their first reverse of the season. Sheffield United could only claim a draw against Bury at Bramall-lane, after the visitors had led bv a eoal for three-parts of the game; while the Wednesday were defeated for the second time by Sunderland, the score being the same in both cases. Notts County were unable to secure the much-coveted victory, being only able to make a draw with Derby County, while their rivals, the Forest, accomplished the same result at Wolverhampton, the Reds doing well to make a draw with the Wolves. Bolton Wanderers bad a keen tussle with North End, securing a victory by the narrow margin of one goal to nil, and West Bromwich improved their record by defeating Stoke pointless. It has become customary to read of large gates' at Liverpool, and it is not surprising, therefore, to learn that at the match between Liverpool and Everton there was an attendance estimated at thirty-five thousand. On Saturday every- thing pointed to the success of Everton. In the early part of the season the great team went badly, whereas Liverpool gave promise of doing great things. Then the conditions altered. Everton improved and Liverpool went back, with the result that up to Saturday Everton had won two matches out of three, and Liverpool had lost one and drawn two. The team; last season played a pointless draw in this engagement; on Saturday Liverpool won handsomely by three goals to one.
