    Match Report by Glen Isherwood

Scotland had lost on their last three visits to Wembley but now needed only a point to win the British Championship outright for the first time since 1929. England's 2-1 defeat by Wales at Molineux meant that they had to beat Scotland to win the title.

After half an hour, Bastin dribbled his way along the touchline and put in a great cross which left George Camsell with the simple task of beating Dawson from close range. England held this lead until the 76th minute. Crum was brought down in the box by Hapgood and Tommy Walker made no mistake from the penalty to give Scotland the Championship and end their run of defeats at Wembley.
