    Match Report

The 39th annual match between England and Scotland was played at Hampden-park, Glasgow, on Saturday and resulted in a win for the Scottish team by two goals to none...

The game was fast and interesting from the start, and for nearly 20 minutes neither side could claim any marked advantage. Everything up to that point suggested a close and even fight, but then Scotland scored, and a great change came over the play. The Scottish side, encouraged by their success, played with fine dash and confidence, whereas the limitations of the English defence, suggested even in the early stages of the match, became more and more marked. A second goal for Scotland followed rather more than half an hour from the start, and afterwards there was never any doubt about the result...

The attendance was estimated at 100,000, and the gate receipts amounted to 4,417. - The Times - Monday 4th April, 1910
