I FOOTBALL. I LEDBURY TOWN v DROITWICH UNITED. This match took place on Ledbury ground yesterday (Thursday) the kick-olf being fixed for 6 p.m., but owing to several of bhe Ledbury players not turning up to time the game did not start till 6.15, when Ledbury had to take the field with eight men. Mr H Bragg was referee and the teams were Droitwioh-N orwood; Smith, Groves Dug- gan, Galpin, Neale Harris, Harrison, Colley, Everton, Maycroft. Ledbury—Vicarage H Smith, Ellsmore W Powell, Partridge, Griffiths Pudge, W Smith, Hottit, J C Smith, Watts. Droitwich won the toss, and Ledbury were soon down, although with only eight men, but they were sent back, though Watts all but got through. Droitwich, who had the wind and sun behind them, then made their presence felt, but could make no impression, Ellsmore, J C Smith and W Powell coming on about this time. Droitwich made a good run-up and Maycroft getting across a nice centre, Harrison had only the goalkeeper to beat, but Vicarage saved well, and cleared with the forwards on him. Ledbury got going and after good work on the right, W Smith sent across a good centre, which the goalkeeper failed to clear, and Hoult headed into an empty goal. Pudge failed to get the ball across when well placed. The Ledbury forwards were too easily robbed to make much progress just at this time, and Droitwich attacked, but Smith raised the siege, and Hoult sent over. At half-time Ledbury were leading by a goal to nil. On restarting Droitwich attacked, but could not get through, and Ledbury went up chiefly through Hoult and Jim Smith. Griffiths got in a fine shot which the goalie saved and H Smith and Griffiths both tried long shots which were not far off the mark. Hoult passed out to the left and Jim Smith got across a fine centre which went just by the post. H Smith cleared nicely, and Powell almost gave a corner, but recovered and cleared. Hoult had a long shot, a grounder, but the goalkeeper safely held it. Play was rather scrappy. Partridge sent by from a free kick and from another taken by Ellsmore, W Smith headed into goal, but only a corner resulted. From a nice movement between Partridge, Hoult and the right wing Pudge sent just over. Hoult sent wide and then Griffiths made a fine dash-and sent by the post with a long shot. Pudge again sent across well, but Droitwich cleared. Hoult again fed the left well and Jim Smith centred for Wilf Smith to flash a hot shot by the post. Pudge broke away on the right just as the whistle blew for time with Ledbury winners by a goal to nil. There was an excellent gate, and the trades- people of the town patronised the match very well. The game revealed the fact that in Jim Smith the Town have a very promising outside left. He was well fed by Hoult, and utilised the passes to good ad vantage. Norton Bar- racks provide the opposition to-morrow (Satur- day), and there should be a good gate for the last match of the season. The full team will turn out. Kick-off at 3-30 p.m. prompt.
