The field was slippery at Tottenham on Mon- day when the Cambridge University Eleven and the Hotspur played a drawn game of two goals each. Cambridge had practically their best side, while Leach-Lewis, the old Cambridge Blue, appeared at half for the 'Spurs. It was good, bright football, and evenness marked the game. H. V. Farnfield scored for Cambridge just before the interval. In the second half the 'Spurs quickly equalised, one of the visitors halves putting the ball through his own goal. Then -came a goal by O'Hagan for the 'Spurs, and another by G. L. M'ellin for Cambridge. There were several thousand' people present. In an exhibition game at Craven Cottage Ground, Fulham, the home side scored two goals to none again Everton. There was a goal in each half. Everton took things rather leisurely, but on the slippery turf it was impos- sible to play particularly well.
